Notes: George Rodrigue wrote of the painting and subsequent prints, "On the night of September 11, 2001, like Americans everywhere, I sat in shock in the events of the day. As I've done many times in my life, I turned to my easel and painted for comfort...
I first thought to paint the dog black, as if in mourning. Instead I painted it without color at all, the blue joy drained by shock and grief. For many years the dog has had yellow, happy eyes. On this day, however, the eyes are red, indicating a heavy heart."
Overall very good condition. No examined out of frame. Frame: abrading to the right side.
