Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Original Miniature Art A Gift For Christmas :: Posted by: Hazel on October 12th, 2017

Original Miniature Art – A Special and Unique Gift

Miniature Art is not just for Dolls Houses

As you may know my miniature dolls house art paintings are very popular, they are all over the world and grace walls in doll houses and miniature properties from Manor Houses to country cottages and Tea shops and boutiques to Grand houses.

But my tiny miniatures are also owned by collectors of miniature art, I have seen photos of them displayed in many ways, on shelves, on stands and easels, in frames and as ornaments.

I also sell ACEO size Art card miniature which are a special format size art which it 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Which are collectible artworks.

Art makes a great gift for Christmas.

I have been told over the years of many of my paintings (large and in miniature) have been given as gifts and I think this is a great honour to have my work shared in this way.

But Do you hesitate when thinking of Art as a gift?

“How will they display it” or “Where will they put it”, this is a good question, not everyone wants to be drilling walls to hang paintings, so what about a miniature painting?

Not just as small as a tiny dollhouse piece maybe – unless you want a gift for a dollhouse owner of course ? but a miniature ACEO size collectible original art work 3.5 x 2.5 inches or one of my A6 size pieces can be displayed on a stand or mini easel. This makes the artwork movable and as much an ornament as a piece of Art.

Artwork Provenance :
“Definition of provenance noun [mass noun] the place of origin or earliest known history of something:
[count noun] a record of ownership of a work of art or an antique, used as a guide to authenticity or quality: “
quoted via oxforddictionaries.com

Art provenance is the history of a piece of art / painting, and how it was created and the ownership thereof. So buying direct from the artist gives you the knowledge of where your piece of art has come from.

Direct from the Artist ……

As all my Art In Wax have been painted by me Hazel Rayfield you know where the painting has come from and have contact with the artist, my paintings are signed and dated on the back, some also have my initials in the wax too. Each painting comes with a leaflet which can be included in with the gift giving the recipient more information about Art In Wax.

I have lots of paintings online in my web shop and in my Etsy store, so lots of choice, from flowers and landscapes to birds like my new Toucan pieces, hummingbirds, parrots and peacocks, and much more !!! I also do commissions if you want something special painted for Christmas just get in touch.

Facebook A Great Showcase for Art In Wax

Art In Wax on Facebook

The Art In Wax Facebook page www.facebook.com/artinwax is where I show a lot of my work first nowadays, it is an ideal social media platform me. It is easy to use, allowing me to upload photos from my computer or phone, giving collectors and followers of my work an opportunity to see works in progress, and new works almost as soon as they are finished.

Facebooking about my art, especially my miniature dolls house pieces has proved to be a great way to share and sell my work online, I am a member of several groups on Facebook too and often I show pieces of art and they sell before they even reach my shops here and in Etsy. Which is great.

Connecting on Facebook

Facebook is also where a lot of my commission work comes from. And it is a great place to connect with the people interested in my paintings and art in general. I have made lots of friends (not just Facebook type friends – but real friends) via my connections on Facebook. I love to know where my art ends up and the feedback from the people I have connected with has been amazing.

These are just a very few of the Facebook comments I have had over the past couple of months.

Alison in Essex

I have brought some beautiful art and my dolls house and shop look stunning with your pictures in. I also have your bigger pictures on stands which made beautiful ornaments plus my frames when I get round to finishing them.

Lesley in Scotland

I have 4 paintings done by Hazel Rayfield Scottish thistles and Highland cow they are fabulous I would highly recommend her

Amanda in Leeds

I have two of Hazel Rayfields painting and they are absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend her if you want something beautiful. Hazel did a commissioned painting for me and I’m sure if you asked her, she would be happy to do a special painting for you too
