Allium Landscape Art In Wax by Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on December 29th, 2015
Allium Landscape – last post of 2015
My newest painting – Art In Wax
I feels only right to make the last blog post of 2015 about the last painting of 2105, this is my latest piece of Art in Wax finished today, it is a colorful landscape in encaustic wax on specialist gloss card and is a large piece at A3 in size.
Alliums are one of my favorite flowers, I hope you like the painting, please feel free to leave me a comment below …..
Alliums, also known as ornamental onions, are grown for their showy flower heads, which come in wide range of sizes and shades of blue, purple, white and yellow. Even when the plants die back, the dried flower heads look attractive in the garden, or can be cut for indoor display.

New Art In Wax Poppy Paintings
Just a quick blog post today to show my latest large paintings, both the pink and the teal coloured poppy pictures are painted in encaustic hot wax onto A3 sized specialist gloss encaustic card, I am showing them here in mounts and frames for display, but they are currently available (at the time of writing) for sale either mounted or unmounted, please contact me if you are interested in buying these or any other of the works shown in my blog or website.
Buy Art Direct from the Artist
I currently have an outlet store on the shopping site Etsy and have some works listed in my website shop but I often show work on facebook and other social media and it is sold before it goes in my shops, so if you see a picture in the Gallery or online why not ask if it is still available …… also if it is sold I may be able to paint you a similar one as a commission.
All the poppies in the picture below are A3 in size but have been cropped just for display in this images …..
Miniature Art as a Gift :: Posted by: Hazel on November 5th, 2015
Miniature Art – Not just for Dolls Houses
I love to paint my Art In Wax in all sizes, and the challenge of painting small in hot wax is great fun.
I paint as you may know from reading my blog in hot wax, often called “Encaustic Art” I paint using a variety of heat tools, irons and heated stylus tools some of which my husband has adapted to enable me to get more smaller detail into my pictures.
I sell of lot of my miniature Art to Dolls House Collectors and to ACEO collectors too, but miniature Art is not just for Dolls Houses ……..
Many people own and collect miniature Art
Lots of people all over the world collect ACEO size Art, an ACEO is a Art Card Editions and Originals and is sized at 2.5 x 3.5 inches, if you would like to know more about this collectible Art form I blogged about it sometime ago here : ACEO and ATC : Miniature Paintings and I still paint ACEO size pictures and also smaller pieces which are suitable for Dolls Houses of various sizes.
My Art In Wax Dolls House art is now in many dollhouses and Miniatures properties, from Grand Manor Houses to Country Cottages, from Boutiques and Shops to Hotels and even a Railway Station Pub and they are sold worldwide from my studio here in Southend England, I have had an amazing response to my art over the past few years and last month (October 2015) was a record month with more paintings, large and in miniature going to new homes than any month since I started painting in hot wax over 4 years ago.
Lots of reasons to own and collect miniature Art
Miniature Art isn’t just for Dolls Houses, a piece of miniature art can be framed or displayed on a mini easel or just free standing on a shelf. It doesn’t need a lot of room or wall space so can be kept where there is limited space, it also makes a lovely gift. See my blog post about giving Art for Christmas …. Giving Art as a gift : Something Special and Unique
- Fun to display on a mini easel or framed
- No need for lots of room
- Look great in there own or in a group of miniatures
- A lovely little gift
- Someone small, original and unique
- Suitable for lots of occasions as a gift
I love all things Miniature
As well as painting in miniature I love all things miniature, I have my own miniature property, a 1:12 scale victorian shop created by my husband Adrian, the outside is a shop front but inside is a modern and contemporary art gallery Called The Gallery, which this week has a new exhibition of “Christmas trees” seasonal paintings and even has its own miniature Christmas tree. I also have a miniature dresser that has pride of place on a shelf in our lounge and there are of course many miniature paintings in other rooms, my office for example in which I am sitting to type right now !!
