A west-going heart

Erin Hicks, an artist who blogs here, stopped over in Springfield several weeks ago to take in the Lincoln sites and she discovered Vachel. She blogs about her visit here. She made the watercolor paintings above during her travels.

Check out more of her work at her blog. She really has a lot of talent.
