My good friend Karin Jurick emailed me and said she spotted this painting in the June 2009 issue of Southwest Art Magazine, promoting my upcoming two-man show with Manuel Nunes at the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento.

The article refers to me as Christopher Scott. Easy to do… Christopher Stott / Christopher Scott… see the difference? Even if you say it out loud you can barely hear the difference. It is a common error for the entire Stott clan. Everyone with my last name has a Stott/Scott mix-up to share. The upside is that it is easy to hide my identity should I ever need to. The downside is it makes it hard to Google me to find out more about my work.

Once I get my hands on an actual copy of the magazine I’ll share it with you, along with many more paintings included in the show.

    This painting is spectacular. Makes me feel like I should go and open my own bottle of something deep and dark and delicious. Perhaps the person who wrote the article had also been inspired to indulge, thus using a “c” instead of a “t”. That can sometimes happen you know – a kind of lisp takes over after having more than one glass! In this case, it would be a reverse lisp. Congratulations on the article. Hopefully people will notice the www. address in the lower left hand corner to google your name. 🙂

    It really is an honor to be in the magazine! It’s just a minor incident and I’m aware it happens all the time.

    Thanks for the comment, Joanne.

    Hi! Christopher Stott,
    Congratulations! once again!…because if my memory serve me correctly, I think that another one of your painting was also featured in a previous issue of Southwest Art Magazine,

    …Therefore, I guess that I will have to seek out a copy of this issue too!…and what a beautiful painting…entitled “Bottles and Bartlett Pears” that is featured in the magazine article. (Promoting your upcoming two-man show with Manuel Nunes at the Elliott Fouts Gallery.)

    Take care!
    DeeDee ;-D

    Dear Christopher. This is my first visit to your site (being rather new to blog-land myself) and I am just floored by your work. These bottles and pears are sumptuously beautiful! Beyond the extreem level of technical skill that you display there is a calm, inviting, almost meditative ambiance here that is incredibly attractive. I look forward to following your work in the future and wish you much continued success! Aliaena
