Animal paintings inspired by the "Blue Dog" artist George Rodrigue

George Rodrigue was an artist from New Orleans, Louisiana who became well know for his colorful paintings of "Blue Dog."  The original Blue Dog painting was based on the Cajun folk tale of loup- garou.  Rodrigue died in 2013.
First and second grade artists made paintings on canvas panels based on the artistic style of George Rodrigue.  Like the Blue Dog, their animals were painted in non-realistic colors on colorful backgrounds.
