Blue Dog Art by George Rodrigue

November 4, 2008

A Happy Sunshine Day by George Rodrigue

George Rodrigue started a cult following the moment he first painted a Blue Dog on canvas. I’m not sure what exactly brought about the frenzy, but I love it. I don’t have $22,000 (starting price) to pay for an original, and the copies aren’t exactly cheap either, but I guess that’s just what it costs to have a piece of the blue dog. I did buy the 2008 planner to satisfy my urges, but will that be enough? You can purchase the above silk-screen through George Rodrigue’s website for $1,200.

What is almost as good as a Great Dane?

Great Dane on canvas, duh!

I found DJ Rogers, an artist from California who loves painting dogs (and sometimes cats) in watercolor. I have never bought a piece of Great Dane artwork before, but I have never seen one that I would want on my wall until this piece, titled “Black Great Dane” popped up in front of me. I just can’t decide if I want it on canvas or archival-quality paper. You can purchase through the Artist’s website or Ebay store.

This one also caught my eye, “Great Dane Sunset”Paintings are supposed to make you happy or peaceful, or at least mine do.

Maxfield Parrish Artwork

I even dabble in it from time to time, but I also like collecting pieces that I fall in love with.  I grew up surrounded by Maxfield Parrish prints and coffee-table books all over my house growing up, my mother loved his work. His paintings are mesmerizing. Whether they are landscapes or his Fairy Tale pieces, I just love the colors and the depth. You can purchase his prints through
