Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

My Miniature Art on display in Connecticut :: Posted by: Hazel on October 19th, 2020

Welcome to Connecticut Bauernhof Manor House

Miniature Art in its new home in Connecticut
Today I’m very honoured to be able to share with you one of my new collectors dollhouse. Miranda started collecting my art earlier this year after seeing my posts on Instagram.

The name of her house is “Connecticut Bauernhof Manor House” and is shown here in the photographs with my art in its new home. The photographs are taken by the collector and copyright is respected.

Miranda tells me she bought this her, first dollhouse last October, it has 7 rooms, and she is already planning the next larger house …..The houses came from her local dollhouse shop: Whimsies Dollhouse Shop in Greenwich, Connecticut

The residents (dolls) of this amazing miniature property are ;
Arthur (Art) and Ava both age 41, Elsa age 6 and Ella just 18 months old
Gerda is the maid, and Elisa (Ava’s younger sister, she’s 37 years old)
Ava’s and Elisa’s parents Einar and Elise also reside in this wonderful house.

The back story is that they are from Austria and their last name is Bauernhof, all Except Gerda who is from Denmark. And they have a dog named is Laddie.

Miniature Art in Situ

Arts Study has my boat painting over the stairs and an Autumnal landscape painting above his desk.


In Elisa’s beautiful bedroom hangs “The Lady in The Garden” painting, a real statement piece at 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches.

The Cottage at “Cherry Tree Lane” has roses around the door and wisteria growing up the front apex, this Dollhouse size miniature painting is just 2 x 2 1/4 inches And fits perfectly into the decor of this dressing room, as does The Street Shopping scene.

The Ballerina takes her curtain call ….. this pretty painting is just great in this setting, how lovely is the furniture in this room, I just love the toys and the tutu is so cute, which was made by Miranda who also makes wonderful miniature wedding dresses.

Thank you Miranda for sharing your dollhouse with us, I’m very honoured to have my paintings in such a lovely setting.

I do love this quote

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
it’s about learning to dance in the rain”

The videos show the miniature paintings on Display in my art gallery 1:12th scale, and I thought this quote worked so well with the subject and also the times we are currently living in  ……

Art Gallery 1:12th Scale :: Posted by: Hazel on July 28th, 2020

Art Gallery 1:12th Scale

The Gallery is my folly……

I have painted for many years, Encaustic about nine years now.

Adrian my husband built  The Gallery for me some years ago, when I had been painting in miniature and for dolls houses a while and it was just a natural progression. I have blogged many times about the Gallery including a back story …… See below for more on that

The Gallery Today

The Gallery my miniature art gallery
My Art Gallery ….. Take The Tour 2020

I wasn’t brave enough to go Facebook Live but this is inside my Art Gallery right now …..

Posted by Art In Wax on Monday, 27 July 2020

My miniature art is for sale, I have a wide range of subjects and themes online for sale, links in the Blog side border to my Etsy Store.

The paintings on the walls of the gallery are not available to buy but if you like one why not commission me to paint one for you.

The Gallery : The Back Story

When we were planning and building The Gallery some years ago we (my husband Adrian – he built it for me, I just paint the pictures) chatted and a “back story” developed over time so just for fun I wrote a blog post share our (frictional) story …….

The property at 27 Coast Road is a Victorian double fronted shop property which started life as a bakery called The Granary…. more on my blog https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/the-gallery-112-scale-miniature-scene-art-gallery/
