The Practical Household Physician Oil Painting by Christopher Stott
16 x 16 / oil on canvas

Each clock is a little character with its different color, its own style. In groupings they interact with each other.

I started painting clocks ten years ago. You can see one of the first ones on Flickr here. I considered them my modern take on a less morbid memento mori. I have always had a keen awareness of the passage of time.

Below is a simple set titled Five. Above is The Practical Household Physician – a peculiar Victorian-era medical guide – full of its own hints on mortality.
