Five Miniature Stag Paintings

The Blue Stag which is framed in a Black wooden handmade frame and the silver Stag on a a dark green painted background in a White frame, wooden handmade as the other one are tiny at 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches. These are front loaded frames so the paintings will be stuck in.

The stag on the easel to the right is silver encaustic paint on a specialist black gloss card. And is the same size as the middle Stag which is very striking on a bronze card with a mix of black and silver wax paint making  this a very abstract style. They are approximately 1 3/4 by 1 3/8 inches each

And finally the front on stag, which is on white card and is 2 by 1 1/2 inches in size.

Ice cream parlour dollhouse art paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on February 3rd, 2020

The Ice Cream Parlour Collection

Following on from my January post called the Wedding Store I thought it would be fun to make a back drop for my Ice Cream Parlour themed paintings. These delicious delights, the paintings I mean ! have been extremely well received, the paintings, signs, together with the bill boards. I was amazed how last year so many of these went into miniature dollhouse properties, seems ice cream parlour in miniature are very popular.

This is a little film I did today to look at the new and recent paintings……

The Ice Cream Parlour …..Well paintings of ice cream, maybe I should call it the ice cream art gallery.

Great Fun

It is great fun to paint these pretty treats, I personally love Ice cream, vanilla is my go to but on occasion I love a chocolate sundae and have been know to have the “full works” now and then !!!

The paintings shown are varied and range from mixed media pieces that I have printed part of the background, the words and border. Others are full encaustic wax.

My miniature dolls house paintings including many of these pieces are available to buy from my Etsy Store

Miniature Art In Wax in Dolls Houses Worldwide :: Posted by: Hazel on January 29th, 2020

A wonderful Collection of Miniature Dolls Houses

A fellow miniaturist Linda whom I follow on Instagram recently showed her collectible dolls houses in her feed and some were showing my art inside and she has allowed me to share these, and other new photos she has sent me, with you on my blog.

Art in dollhouse

Linda tells me

“I have several houses, a large Victorian, a modern colonial and an English stone cottage that is my witches house.”

“Your art is so beautiful in person”

Linda has several of my paintings in her houses and has also used them as part of her seasonal displays.  It is so lovely to see my paintings in their new homes, it really brings them to life.

When Linda says “they are so beautiful in person”, I’m really pleased, this is the comment and feedback I get more than any others, the depth of colour, texture and sheen of working in the Encaustic medium  is not shown to its fullest in photographs and selling my art online is a challenge at times as the image is all there is to go on for a collector.

I think you will agree these miniature properties look amazing, the patience and detail …… just WOW.

Miniature 1:12 witches dollhouse

The basket flower in this beautiful room in her house, the northern lights in her modern colonial house and a “Tree of Life” style picture which is one of my favourites and looks amazing  in the stone cottage.

This Tree of Life piece has layers of encaustic wax paint on a black encaustic card that I have scratched and painted with hints of gold wax for the leaves. The painting has been backed onto card, the edge has been painted to give the effect of a framed border and to give an idea of the ratio thus piece is 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches in size.

Room Boxes Seasonal Displays

I just love how miniatures can we displayed, I often say “miniatures are not just for Dolls houses”.

These Instagram posts of amazing seasonal displays, which are room boxes “Cleaning up ready for Halloween” and Christmas Holiday which she has used my paintings in too are just delightful and so detailed, the more you look the more you see.

How “The Wedding Store” development came to be ……

I was a web developer and did graphic design for many years and although my art is my passion as well as my work now I do still tinker with the digital too.

I created these wall murals to be the back drop for my new collection of wedding paintings. The brides …. Boho Bride – Spring Bride – La Bella Bride take center stage the walls also show my newest paintings of dressed miniature mannequin paintings.

The Wedding Store Miniature diorama

Boho Bride Spring Bride and La Bella Bride are centre stage.

The walls have lots of mannequin dressed in bride dresses ….. not all brides wear white how about a black or red wedding dress?
