Art In Wax Painting Highland Cows – First Commission of 2017 :: Posted by: Hazel on January 3rd, 2017
First Commission of 2017
Highland Cow – Modern Dolls House Art
Happy New Year to all my blog followers.
I was thinking of a subject for the first blog post of the new year when I received a commission to paint a miniature highland cow for a dolls house owner in Scotland, so I thought the first commission of the year would make a great first blog post of 2017.
Commissioned Art For Modern Dolls House
The miniature collector asked if I could paint a highland Cow picture for her dolls house, as this is a her favourite animal and she has several pictures in her home and it would be fun to have a miniature painting for her miniature property.
I painted two for choice and she has order both, the landscape has the cow in a heather filled grassland, this is an impressionist piece and has been supplied in a black wooden frame size 3 x 4 inches. The other piece of art is a on encaustic cream gloss card and is a modern, more of a portrait style just 2 1/2 inches high.
The photos shown here are on display in my own miniature property : The Gallery which is my 1:12 scale art gallery.
Commissioning a piece of miniature art
I love painting commissions, especially miniatures, these are only paint in my style, I do not paint reproductions. If you would like to commission a piece at a specific size and subject matter please contact me for more details.

A Teddy Bears Picnic – Miniature Art In Wax
How a fun commission turned into an exhibition
I love to do commissions (I only do commissions in my style – no copies or reproductions) and I was delighted this month to be commissioned to paint a Teddy Bear which will be residing in a Dolls House Nursery.
The bear in question was Top Hat Teddy (see photo). The brief was to, and I quote, “Surprise Me”
The lady who commissioned me has been a collector of Art In Wax for a while now and wanted a new Teddy painting for her themed room, so I let my imagination have fun with the project and come up with this small collection of Teddy paintings …..
It was great fun to paint these cute little paintings and I kept getting more ideas, so after a couple of days in the studio I came up with this new selection which you can see here on display as a “Teddy Bear Painting Exhibition” in The Gallery which is my 1:12 Art Gallery, which I have spoken about many times on my blog ……

The Egyptian Collection
New Dolls House Art
My latest miniature paintings have an Egyptian theme, following a recent communication from someone who is going to be building a dollshouse themed around tuts tomb, I thought it would be fun to paint some pictures in this theme, they would be great in a themed room or it had been suggested that they would work well in a period Art Deco style room or miniature property.
The four new paintings are shown here on display here in my 1:12 Art Gallery.

Original Wall Art Modern Poppies :: Posted by: Hazel on March 29th, 2016
I recently did a blog post showing some my latest larger A3 poppy paintings : Going Large and thought we would take some more photos to show them in perspective of size.
These Poppy Art paintings are painted in encaustic hot wax onto A3 sized specialist gloss encaustic card, they can be purchsed as they are just on the card and could be then cut to fit a mount and frame of your choice, or I do have some mounts that I could supply them in, these three I am holding are currently available (at the time of writing this post) 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
Other Poppy and original artworks are also avaiable online 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.
