Praise For The Other Side of the Painting

"Wendy Rodrigue has the soul of an artist and the pen of a writer. She writes with honesty, humor, emotion, and a love of life and art. Her book is a meditation on both."

-‑Debra Shriver, author, Stealing Magnolias: Tales from a New Orleans Courtyard

“Rodrigue's aim for the heartstrings and the funny bone is what makes this book so engaging. An UNpretentious book about art--who'd have ever thought?!?”

--Tabitha Soren, journalist and photographer

“In The Other Side of the Painting, Wendy Rodrigue paints an indelible and courageously candid portrait of one of America's preeminent living artists, her husband, George Rodrigue. But this is a tale of two artists as, through a bold progression of essays, muse emerges as creator in her own right, Writer Wendy Rodrigue. Here, heart, wisdom, and the gift of acute observation coalesce in an expansive contemplation of art, culture, and yes, romance at once passionate and reverent.”

--David Lummis, author, The Coffee Shop Chronicles of New Orleans
