Why, state of the blog, favorite posts at year's end?--IV

"The Back 40" children's mural in Burrowing Owl Books, Amarillo, subject of my fav 2019 blog posts
Looking back, it's been a year of change for me as a blogger and artist.
My favorite posts had to do with that change, challenged by my daughter Dallas Bell to paint a wall mural. in her new Burrowing Owl Bookstore in Amarillo. There are three October posts showing the project. 

Two other posts involving change were about the death of my chess partner John Lawton, and attending an oil painting workshop with G. Russell Case.
Oh, and here's what the mural looks like in the children's reading area now. And, that folks is -30-for the blog this year.
