Balancing Act

  • Sometimes life is a circus

    When was the last time you did just one thing at a time? (Me either.) In Balancing Act, this toy elephant is working hard to keep everything together - my metaphor for life in this crazy, modern world.

  • Balancing Act is a perfect example of my devotion to using age-old representational art techniques to portray present-day subjects and themes.

    For example, if you look at a painting by one of the Dutch Masters, you will see the same techniques used in Balancing Act: multiple layers to add color depth, a glassy-smooth surface quality, with the still life objects painted to evoke a sense of richness and intensity.

  • 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.
