I want to thank everyone who has visited the site and those who have purchased one of my pieces. I appreciate it very much.
Thanks also for following me on Instagram or Facebook and signing up for my emails.
This is all to say, I am happy that you engage with my work — as well as all the other art in your lives. Without you, there is no art.
I’m reminded of the age-old question about a tree falling in the woods. If no one is there, does it make a sound? The most moving picture, painting, sculpture, movie or book needs someone to engage with it. If no one sees a work of art, is it art?
“Overhead Groin,” my September calendar image, was taken with my drone hovering over the Lee Street Beach groin. After producing this image, I did some research on the four basic types of structures used to “control” water along a coast. (I use control in quotes, because given enough time, nature will always win against anything manmade.) Here they are:
Breakwater: This structure is designed to create a sheltered area behind it, usually a harbor. The breakwater keeps the lake or ocean waves from damaging boats, buildings and other property.
Groin: This is a structure built perpendicular to the shore. It is designed to keep sand from migrating down shore. Groins are therefore built in series. Where I live in Evanston, for example, there are five groins, one at each of our Lake Michigan beaches.
Jetty: A jetty is a single structure that extends out into the water, most often at the mouth of a harbor. The jetty creates a protected passageway, allowing boats to safely enter and exit the harbor.
Seawall: This structure is built parallel to the coast and is designed to protect the land from erosion and damage caused by the waves.
