Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Commission a piece of miniature dollhouse art from a miniaturist artist :: Posted by: Hazel on January 8th, 2018

Commission a Piece of Original Miniature Art

Following on from my previous post, 2018 sees some changes to the Art In Wax focus, bringing my miniaturist work to the fore. Nearly all my work is paintings miniature now, with last year seeing them go to more countries than ever before. At the last count my Art is in 17 countries on 4 continents. I have to pinch myself when I think about it. Who knew !! when I started painting Encaustic how my journey would be. It has been and continues to be my passion to paint miniature art in Encaustic hot Wax paints.

Commission Page Update

I’ve been updating my website this weekend revamping the miniature art commissions page and as a result looking back at some of my sold paintings…… which reminds me …..

Maybe I should paint another a hot air balloon landscape, and perhaps a different style vintage caravan, I still love painting poppies, to think of something new for the seahorses, my “under the sea, dolphins and mermaids were popular a couple of years ago, but I haven’t painted any in a while…… I don’t know how I forgot them !

Good to look back

It seems at this time of year, the start of a new year with all the possibilities this will hold, that looking back is a fond occupation. I have enjoyed looking at the commissions I have done in the past, not all these paintings shown in this graphic were commissions but they are all sold, and with that in mind. If you see a piece of my art that is sold but would like one similar, it won’t be the same as each piece is unique and original, then why not get in touch and see if I can paint a piece of miniature original art …. just for you.

It is not as expensive as you may think……

Commissions can be a single piece or a set of two or more paintings, the cost is dependant on your requirements and will be quoted together with my payment terms before the commission is started. They don’t cost much more than the paintings I have already online.

I look forward to painting lots of commissions in 2018 ….. maybe one will be for you ?

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.

Miniature Art @ Home by Essex Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on August 23rd, 2017

Miniature Art In Wax @ Home

Miniature Art In Wax @ Home ….. I love to see my art in their new homes and quite people often send me messages or we connect via Facebook or Etsy and show me photographs of the pieces of my mini art they have bought and how they are on display in their dolls houses or miniature properties.

Last year I did a blog post showing lots of dollhouses and room boxes with miniature art in wax on display you can see that post : “Miniature dolls houses displaying Art In Wax”

Miniature Art for Dolls Houses but Not Just For Dolls Houses !

This post shows some more miniature properties with paintings on display and also how my miniature art is “not just for dolls houses”. I am very fortunate to have collectors of my miniature art whom have miniature art collections.

I know from communication with collectors, some of whom I have got to know very well and are friends now, sharing a passion for all things miniature, that my art is displayed in many ways from dolls houses to room boxes and in albums, on display shelves and made into collectible frames for the wall. I too have miniature art on display in this way. As you may know if you have read my blog I have my own miniature 1 :12 scale property – an Art Gallery which is a Victorian double front shop with a contemporary interior called The Gallery. I also have miniature art on display on miniature easels on shelves in our lounge, my office and of course my studio.

Some of the owners of my mini art have given me permission to show their photos here on this blog post today.

Thank you everyone who has contributed. My art is sold worldwide and below are some photo from both local and international collectors.

Lesley from Scotland has several pieces of my art In here house, the thistle, stag landscape and the highland cattle, which was painted as a commission for her, look great in her house.

Alison in Essex has dolls houses but is also a collectors whom love to display my art in different ways has made the frame below to display some of her collection of Art In Wax. Some of these pieces are very unique as Alison commissioned me to paint specifically for her collection….. including a very cheeky monkey !!!

The artist studio set below with lots of paintings including a peacock and exotic birds is not a dollhouse house but a shelf. Susan in Washington state USA has this collection of my art in a very cleverly put together “set display” on a shelving unit in her home. It is very effective and I love the idea of creating a set from miniatures like this.

Jan had the paneled frame style screen (shown below)and asked me to paint pictures to go into it, with a theme on poppies and cakes for her mini cafe.

Sam has several dollhouses and here shows us one of her houses with my art on display. The detail of her houses is wonderful, I especially like the bedroom with the framed lavender painting over the bed and the sweet-pea bouquet in the lovely kitchen.
