16 x 24 / oil on canvas / 2009

This is another piece for my June show. It has pre-sold (along with 1:00, 2:00, 3:00) so I’m sharing them a little early.

Painting these books really lights my fire. I picked up the “It’s Story Time” book at an antique shop near my house. Its red cover and the simplicity of the title really are a great contrast to the heavy, dark books.


  1. Hi! Christopher Stott,
    Once again!…What a very “beautiful” painting entitled Story Time.I really like the way, that you captured light and shadow(s) in this painting(s).

    Btw, that painting (in the right hand corner)
    of the 1 cent red bubble gum machine is very
    beautiful and realistic looking too!

    Thanks, for sharing!
    DeeDee ;-D

    Hello DeeDee, thanks for the comment!

    The bubblegum machine is another for the show, I’ll share a larger image in a week or so.

    Great work!

  4. I just found your blog and want to tell you how much I admire your work and dedication to realism.
