Working full time, I often find it difficult to get my own artwork completed.  It is extremely important to me to continue to learn about my voice in the art world and constantly keep my hands, heart and mind savvy with materials and new ideas.  If a student asked for advice about how to balance working full time and making art work, I would probably suggest that they should sketch or do something for their work every day.  I have tried my own advice for the past couple of years and I've found that although sketching is extremely important to my practice, it doesn't seem to satisfy the urge of completing "work". After seeing Jenny Robinson's demonstration in Yuma, I think it reminded me about a large part of my working practice that has prooved true to me over the years.  I enjoy working with a tool as an extension of the hand in a physical manner.  Although I think it is important to constantly practice drawing, I think printing would satisfy the needs of my work right now while also giving me something to do when traveling and when my time is cut short.  So I must thank Yuma for inspiring action.

Here's the start.  It's just a simple linoleum print.  Does anyone have a particular technique for continuing to make art even when time is tight?  Please share.
