In the 1940s, when Jackson Pollock was using sticks, hardened paint brushes and syringes to drip liquid enamel paint – common house paint – onto canvases laid out on the floor, did he think “A lot of people are going to hate this”?
He probably did.
He did it anyway.
I learned this – and do this – by consciously, repeatedly ignoring that voice in my head that says “What will your father think about this piece???!” –
Where it needs to be, always.
