Rekindle the conversation
Well DleeG I don't think it hurts to get new ideas on old topics. Actually I didn't find the subject on the first page of the "Art Talk" category and that goes back 2 years, so again I say I'm hoping people get an active conversation going on the topic.
Personally I'm hoping there are more chatty artists that would like to converse about all aspects of things pertaining to art and life in general and we can get some stimulating conversations going. Giving perfunctory remarks and no substance is not what a forum is about. A forum is the exchange of ideas and an avenue for constructive improvement in thoughts and deeds.
