I've spent the last two days with Elizabeth Alley, off and on -- hanging our show and then taping an interview for WKNO's Checking on the Arts (Thursday morning at 9am on 91.1 fm if you're in Memphis or streaming on their website if you're not).
Elizabeth is never, ever without a sketchbook. I frequently wander out of the house without one, but being with her always reminds me to make a renewed effort to have one on my person at all times. I was grateful to her tonight, because my board meeting lasted longer than the usual hour or so, and it was good to be able to sketch while I listened (really!).
