The art is me doing it – not what is left when I’m done

We know this idea from Jackson Pollock that the paint splatter canvases were the evidence that his art happened but not the actual art itself, that was (technically)  only happening as the paint was flying!

That is how I feel about my large paintings. The following picture is me air-guitaring in front of my Mother Earth mural that I painted on my living room wall a few years ago.
