You never know what you're going to see when you head to the park in Amarillo. Recently, as I began my evening walk at one local park, I noticed something that I'm wondering if I should have noticed before.

Have you noticed this new mural going up in Medi Park?

To Be Fair, It's Technically On The Side Of The DHDC

Looking for murals in Amarillo is starting to feel a lot like playing Pokemon Go. They just randomly show up out of nowhere. If I ever get the time, and the drive to, I would like to map out all of the murals in town.

The latest and greatest, that I've found, is in the process of going up on the side of the Don Harrington Discovery Center. It's a Blank Spaces piece, which is a name we all should be familiar with by now.

I wonder how long before completion. You have to imagine painting during the day in the triple digit heat can't be very good for anyone's overall health.

I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done.
