Three & Ten Vintage Clocks

Three Vintage Alarm Clocks Oil Painting by Christopher Stott
Three / 20 x 40 / oil on canvas

These two paintings are about contrast. Above are three clocks; simple, orderly, tidy, Type A. Below are ten clocks; in a cluster, mingling, Type B. Everyone should know their comfort zone.

Vintage Film Projectors

Last year I started painting film projectors after years of seeing them in vintage and antique stores. They have all the trappings of a subject I like to paint.

The reels all have these unique designs. The repeating pie shapes, the circular repetition, the repeating lines on the lamp housing.

The dials, knobs, levers, switches, gears, springs and buttons give the paintings a tactile sensation.
