Note that the work is framed under glass if picked up in person but will be removed from frame for security when shipped.
Hand-signed with silver paint pen by artist, Boldly signed and annotated "Artists Proof" by George Rodrigue on the recto
Often inaccurately referred to as "Our Love Blooms," this piece is a classic example of Rodrigue's famous Blue Dog IV, a totally new, more contemporary version of the Blue Dog created specifically for use with original silkscreens. In this incredibly rare artist proof, you can see the artist playing with the split font technique in the background of the pink-to-purple heart that immediately surrounds the iconic Blue Dog. Symbols of love, from flowers to hearts surround the Dog, and pop colors of yellow, red, blue, pink, and purple
