All Choked Up
An understated composition that’s full of heart
Artichokes are beloved by artists the world over. They are a joy to paint: Not only do they have all those curious textured spikes, but their colors change from green to purple and peach shades as they age. Add in the angular metal truck and you have a wonderful study of contrasts.
- This painting features one of the oldest toy trucks in my collection, probably from the 20s or 30s. It has wooden wheels and a beautiful patina. All Choked Up was included in the 2012 Southwest Art article on my work: “Richard Hall’s trompe-l’oeil paintings beguile with wit and nostalgia”.
- All Richard Hall prints are limited edition and hand-signed and numbered by the artist.
All of our prints are finished with a coating that protects the print and enhances light-fastness; we use the highest quality pigmented inks with an estimated lifetime of 118 years.
Canvas giclées: Edition of 50 (for all sizes), signed and numbered on the back of the piece. Archivally mounted or stretched and hand-coated with protectant. Framed canvas giclées are hand-framed in our studio with an espresso-colored frame with gold-tone lip. Unframed canvas giclées should not be framed with glass.
Paper giclées: Edition of 250 for 12” x 16” sizes; edition of 125 for 18” x 24”. Printed on high-quality, acid-free paper and comes with a hand-cut mat that fits into a standard-size frame. We recommend that you use a frame with glass to ensure longevity of your paper print.
Please Note: On paper prints, “Size" refers to the outside dimension of the mat. The actual images are smaller and matted to the size listed to fit a standard frame.
