one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard about the process of creating art was said by the art critic Harold Rosenberg…………

 “At a certain moment the canvas began to appear to one American painter after another as an arena in which to act – rather than a space in which to reproduce, redesign, analyze or ‘express’ an object, actual or imagined. What was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event”. (Harold Rosenberg)

Just think about this quote for a while, it may change the whole way you approach your art.
