Florida artist Christopher Still is this week’s featured guest. Christopher is an inductee in the Florida Artists Hall of Fame and is the Artist in Residence for the Florida Legislature. His paintings can be found in museums and private collections including the Governor’s Mansion in Florida and the Smithsonian Institution. In the Tampa Bay area, his work can also be seen at the St. Petersburg City Hall, Tampa International Airport, Sandpearl Resort, Opal Sands Resort and Ruth Eckerd Hall.

In our conversation, we talk about the portrait he did for Governor Lawton Chiles, about the 10 murals he did that were commissioned by the Florida House of Representatives and about his process to beautifully tell Florida’s story in his paintings. We also discuss Florida museums and our state’s art community as a whole.
