Conceptualizing a piece is also done in "real time". An idea can be executed. What you describe as your preferred take on making art sounds very much like objectless conceptual art to me. Especially if you see the final object as being less relevant than the act of making.

A scribbler AND a conceptual artist....a red letter day?
