ChristopherPollockArtChristopher Pollock Art (yep, that's me) doing work and life with my wife Chrissie, mostly in N.Y., Ct. and Ma. We met in college, married, and began our entrepreneurial years (now decades). Summer job skills like construction, landscaping, child care helped inspire multiple businesses, fixing/flipping/renting houses, and when children started happening, a daycare center. Our interests and educations worked well with day care. Chrissie studied education and worked as a writer specializing in media literacy for children plus wrote stories. I majored in recreation and had past experience building/maintaining unique places and objects. During arts and crafts time, puppet like mobiles of frogs, lizards and crocodiles amused the children. Friends asked to buy some of them. Fun on the daycare job, while making art for sale was a win/win in so many ways. A couple of years later was my first art show. During those years we raised three sons and pets. All have flown the nest. The last dog went with our youngest. No more pets, plants or much of anything that keeps us from being where we want or need to be (that's code for visiting children and grandchildren). It's mostly art and computers now. The good news is both can travel with us and be done everywhere.
This was found on my favorite beach sandy of Lake Ontario. Minimal shaping was required.
