Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

10 years of Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on July 25th, 2021

Celebrating 10 Years of Art In Wax

This year, 2021 see lots of mile stones as I celebrate my 10th anniversary of painting in encaustics, hot wax painting .

August was when I sold my first ever painting and when I opened my Etsy shop.

Celebrating

To celebrate, I am created a limited edition series of my paintings.
There will be two styles with just 10 pieces in each, they will be numbered #1 to #10

Limited Edition Art In Wax

So far I have painted four  of the “celebrating” style and three of the “anniversary” style, which you can see below. Some of these are for sale, please contact me or take a look in my Etsy shop.

How it all began

In early 2011 I created my first hot wax Encaustic painting, Having painted in oils, acrylic and watercolours, just as a past time for many years, But when I discovered Encaustics I knew I had found something special.

My passion is for painting in hot wax, it is a fabulous medium to work in, What started as a hobby evolved and I sold my first encaustic painting in August 2011 and this year marks the 10th anniversary of my Art In Wax.

In 2013 I was asked if I could paint some original paintings for a Georgian Dolls House, I took the commission without a second thought! And as they say the rest is history……

As far as I know there are pieces of my Art In Wax in 23 countries on 4 continents……. who knew !!!!

And yes I have to pinch myself.

I am very honoured and every painting that goes to a new home is exciting, the feeling when someone buys one of my paintings never gets old or taken for granted.

Mouse House Creek Woods Shop feature :: Posted by: Hazel on July 12th, 2021

Creek Woods Estate Connecticut – Mouse House Dolls House

This Story is by Miranda

The Woods family have lots of adventures and have a fabulous Instagram page, so you can follow their story. Instagram @creekwoodsestate

Creek Woods Shop

Creek Woods Estate Connecticut Established in 2020 is a property inhabited by an adorable mouse family and their friends. The “Creek’s Toys, Books, and Café” is a shop owned by Lady Meadow Woods with the shopkeeper, River, who takes great pride in maintaining this foothold of the community.

The shop specializes in toys that capture the imagination and wonder of the children in the community. Lady Meadow’s husband, Professor Finn hosts children’s book readings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 6pm-7pm. The book collection is vast and ranges from “The Ugly Duckling” to “Homer’s Odyssey” all of which captivates the children.

The play area induces pure excitement that surges through the children. The kids play with dollhouses, dolls, building blocks, legos, teddy bears, cars, and trucks. The overall atmosphere is that of magic and fun. New toys arrive each week and the children always find something to dazzle them. Other events in the store are not limited to, but include magic shows, puppet theaters, singing and dancing. The rooftop of the shop is ideal for birthday parties and celebrations (weather permitting). On July 3, 2021, the Wood’s children co-hosted an event to celebrate “Friendship and Kindness” along with their human counterparts for #miniletsconnect.

On mornings, River takes glory in acquiring fresh milk, butter, and eggs from local farms. River’s instruments and recipes are calibrated to perfection with satisfying textures, delicious creaminess and flavors titrated to a consistency that is perfectly sweet and delightful. His cakes and cupcakes are decorated intricately, they are elegant. He also creates colorful sweet treats that are gratifying.

The shop is phenomenal. It is an environment that provides enrichment to the children’s cognitive development and an outlet for very satisfying treats that are rewarding. The shop has become the entire family’s favorite place to host events, settle in for a good book and it turned out to become a far more versatile space than Lady Meadow Woods envisioned.

See below a fabulous selection of photographs of the shop, some of which have miniature pieces of my art in ……. Miranda has a large collection of my art and I’m proud to see my ice cream cones and door sign in this wonderful establishment

Miniature Art featured in fashion Doll Magazine

Endora magazine feature

How fun is this …..

The July 2021 issue of endora magazine is out today and I’m the “meet the artist” feature.

Please take a look at this new and up and coming doll magazine, it’s a free online publication.

The editor contacted me via Instagram a short while ago and we arranged the featured.

“Endora magazine is dedicated to covering the Fashion Doll community in all its glory………

……. Barbie, Sindy, Sybarite, LOL, Bratz, Rainbow High, Moxie, Tonner, and everything else from the high end to the high street dolls.”

Quoted from https://www.endoramagazine.com/

My doll house paintings range in size and work for many style and size of doll houses and diorama.

Art is relative I believe, it depends on personal choices and styles and tastes, I’m a very eclectic artist, I painted many subjects, in different styles, modern, period and retro. These go into dolls house and art collections all over the world, and scales range from tiny 1:24th, through to 1:12, 1:6th plus dolls from the world of fashion as in the endora magazine.

I hope you like the feature
