I wish that I could post a photo of it, but my favorite portrait by Lexie is a pastel of one of the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE's crusty ol' engineers out on the BELLE's starboard engineroom guard. Lexie used a photo that she took from the CLARE E. BEATTY during the DQ/BoL race during the first Tall Stacks. Not only is the engineer in exquisite detail, but so is the BELLE's wheel with stirrups, gibs, keys, arms, flanges, pitman, crank, buckets etc. all there.
