i’m jealous of christopher stott

Whoa. How can you not admire anyone that is capable of painting like this!? And, on top of the amazing skill/technique that has gone into this work, they also happen to fit under one of my favorite kinds of art… the “beautifully boring” kind! You know, those mundane, every day objects that your eye most likely skips right over – but, when you take the time to stop and study them, like Canadian artist Christopher Stott obviously has, you realize that each one has it’s own story, and that “boring” really can be amazingly beautiful.

    Love, love, lovity-love-love Christopher Stott’s work. Some of his originals are in a gallery in Napa Valley and they are just as amazing to see in person. I am jealous of anyone who has his ‘7:00, 8:00, 9:00′ painting.
