Sometimes you have to be a parent to enjoy a children''s art show, but the Big Sur Land Trust''s "Walk on the Wild Side" competition, designed to strengthen local children''s connection to the beauty of our natural surroundings, inspired some marvelous pictures. The 15 school-age finalists will display their entries at the Devendorf Park branch of Carmel''s Harrison Memorial Library through Dec. 13. First place winners in three age categories were: Cindy Lau, 14, of Salinas, who used felt-tip pens to create an animal picture that explodes with color; Alex Bynum, 12, of Marina, who used colored pencils for a delicately rendered animal drawing; and Marc McMillan, 8, of Carmel, whose cut-out gray whale fairly gambols across the page.
