If the Arts and Design Topical Forum isn't for discussing art, what is it for, theraggededge?
I see nothing wrong with the OP's question. It reads like perfectly reasonable pre-writing for an artist to me. When you know a great deal about a topic, sometimes it's a good idea to see what aspects of it are known to or interest laymen to find a good starting point.
Just trying to find inspiration and guidance towards a new project. I'm trying to use the opinions and advice to conduct new artwork. At the same time I want to learn from gathering general opinions of art on concrete or stone. I prefer ink, drawing, painting, or engraved stone or concrete.
