Finally I have something that fits the category.
I posted one of these shots several years ago and promised to say more about it later, but after some thought I realized I didn’t know what to say. So I let it go.
Now, however, is the time.
The photos were taken at the Dishman Museum on the Lamar University campus in Beaumont, Texas, where David and I attended the Boomtown Film and Music Festival for a screening of one of his videos. We walked into the Dishman to register and found this piece of Art looming over us. It reached out and pulled my camera from its bag. I began snapping.
My first thought was, It’s from The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, a picture book I love even more than my second-graders did. The pink, the snouts, the little house, the flowers. Pigs.
Then I realized the pink shapes were more wolfish than piggish. Rabidly wolfish.
And cute. Darned cute.

Cute? Is that another word for ghoulish? They look like starved pigs to me.
They’re ghoulish, but in a cute way. Probably because of my first impression. Check out The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig and you’ll forget the ghouls. Sam might be old enough to like it, too. Although maybe not yet. It’s one of those that’s funnier if you’re an adult.
He might like that. I’ll investigate.
