Art or Not

Is this art?

Dictionary definitions include;
Art: painting, photography or sculpture that appeals primarily to the visual sense and typically exists in permanent form.

Fine art: Produced or intended primarily for beauty rather than utility.

Folk art: Art originating among the common people of a nation or region and usually reflecting their traditional culture, especially everyday or festive items.

It is painting that appeals to my visual senses, though it may not be permanent; it is intended primarily for beauty rather than utility; and it originated among the common people. I vote, yes. It’s art on at least three counts.
have a great weekend! jc
