Wild animals and their habitats are favorite subjects for oil paintings and fine prints. Now, in a rising use of outdoorsy decorations for interiors, some artists have added another medium to their repertoire--wallpaper.

"Wallpaper is also a way for me to get the word out to remind people that we have a very enjoyable planet."

Your photograph of that young lad fishing in Echo Park Lake ("Catch of the Day," by Jeremy Bogaisky, Palm Latitudes, Sept. 17) brought back some wonderful memories. That young fisherman could be me or any of my grade school buddies some 70-years ago--except that in those days, fishing in that lake was strictly forbidden. Whenever we could scrape a few pennies together for a fish hook and a length of string, we'd head for the lake after school to try our luck at catching a minnow or a goldfish, all the while keeping an eye out for the park warden.

Motorists on the 2 Freeway for the last couple of months have noticed a shadowy figure or two gazing into the distance from the hills above. Cardboard cutouts of Clint Eastwood, John Wayne and Gene Autry, bearing labels that read "Glendale Public Art Project 2012," have been a mystery — something their creator says is intentional. Justin Stadel, the Glassell Park resident and artist behind the cowboy cutouts, said he created the works so viewers could draw a spiritual feeling, a sense of freedom, from L.A.'s varied landscape.

If Woodbury University architectural students had their way, they would build a youth hostel at Sunset and Glendale boulevards, start a farmers' market on Sunset and post large canvases around Echo Park Lake to encourage people to paint on them.
