How can I be expected to diet when there are delectable donuts hanging about in my studio? (At least, that’s what I thought while constructing this ode to a diet gone wrong.) 14 Days presents the saboteur, front and center, suspended for all to see.
A chalkboard background provides a familiar, friendly way for me to introduce a bit of dialogue into the still life setting. To get the correct chalky texture, I drew on the painted surface with oil pastels, erased the words, then re-drew the final dietary confession.
The use of the string motif not only adds to the composition’s humor, but also helps guide the eye up and down the image. And the blue painter’s tape adds a fun bit of trompe l'oeil, a visual illusion where a painted subject looks like it is really there - as if there is really a piece of tape stuck to the canvas.
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.

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. Image sizes12x16 and 18x24 refer to the outside dimension of the mat. The actual images are smaller and matted to fit a standard size frame.

But chance intervened when a mischievous toddler added her two-cents worth to one of Richard’s still life settings, prompting Richard to see his work in an entirely new way. READ MORE
