We are so proud of all of the students that entered! You are all winners by simply entering. Our first round judging starts today. We should a list of the 15 finalists by next week. So, entrants stay tuned to see if your artwork was chosen!
The 15 finalists will send their artwork to us so that it can be judged in person by our celebrity judges at our Art Contes Awards Luncheon on March 26th, 2011, in New Orleans.For more photos from last year's luncheon visit here .
The Story of the Blue Dog
As a boy, Rodrigue knew of a legend of the "loup-garou" or werewolf that lurked in sugar cane fields, threatening to haunt bad children. The legend said nothing about the loup-garou's color, but Rodrigue thought the night sky would cast a blue-grey shade on its fur when he painted it in 1984 for Bayou (Inkwell), a book of forty ghost stories by Chris Segura.
