    No, you can't.

    Painter's Servant isn't an activated or triggered ability therefore stifle doesn't apply.

    Painter's is technically a replacement effect, asking the owner to make a choice as it moves from the stack to the battlefield. Once it hits the battlefield the "chosen color" in the ability has been replaced with "red" or "white" etc.

    602.1. Activated abilities have a cost and an effect. They are written as "[Cost]: [Effect.] [Activation instructions (if any).]"

    603.1. Triggered abilities have a trigger condition and an effect. They are written as "[Trigger condition], [effect]," and begin with the word "when," "whenever," or "at." They can also be expressed as "[When/Whenever/At] [trigger event], [effect]."
    As Twanos pointed out, Painter's Servant doesn't have an activated or triggered ability, so Stifle cannot be used to stop any part of its ability.
