I thought it might be good to show a few of my new paintings today.

I am getting a lot of studio time at the moment, and both painting new and challenging pieces of my miniature art but also having some fun with favourites……

I have chosen just a few of my more recent pieces to show here, I hope you like them.

The Rock and Roll Fairies

A new collection called “Band of Fairies” was launched earlier this month and I’m showing four of these below, but there are others which can be seen on either my Facebook or Instagram feeds for May 2020 …… the ones shown here are : Rock Chick Fairy, Cello Fairy, Rockin It Fairy Duo And Pink Rock Fairy.

“May Cattle” is a Highland Cow abstract modern miniature style with lots of pink and colourful paint. Shown here in my 1:12th scale art gallery the painting is 2 x 1 1/2inches

Another Highland Cow abstract painting This is “Golden Cow” and at 2 x 2 1/4 inches is prefect for 1:12th size properties. It has a slightly distressed background on a textured Matt card, the cow Is painted in gold tones and makes this a real statement piece and painted on a mount card support which is 2mm deep so lovely when on the wall.

I also painted the Paris View and winter doe in the forest this week …. as you will know if you follow my work, I’m an eclectic artist I paint what the mood takes me.

Afternoon Tea Dolls House Artist :: Posted by: Hazel on April 18th, 2020

Painting Inspiration

As you will know if you follow my blog, or are one of Facebook or Instagram friends and followers, that I get my inspiration for my paintings from all sorts of places, mostly, My imagination, I see something and it gives me an idea, my husband Adrian, is also good at challenging me and over the years he has come up with great ideas. I also take on miniature commission Work, which again has lead me to paint usual subjects,  it that’s for another post

So to get to the point ……. last week on social media I put up a couple of posts opening up my Facebook and Instagram pages to suggestions for what I called “what to paint next?”

And several people posted ideas, Stephanie on Instagram suggested a Vintage Tea Cups and Saucers. Linda suggested owls and Kaz from Facebook palm tree beach. I have in fact painted all these subjects in the past, but great to be reminded and to think of a new twist for them, I do like to do things different. So I have painted all of these suggestions which can be seen in my timelines.

But for this  post here today, I am showing how I developed the idea of the vintage tea cup …….

“Afternoon Tea”

A cake stand with delicious cupcakes, china cup and saucer and a vase of Spring flowers …… How fun would a miniature painting of an afternoon tea be in a dolls house kitchen or dinning room, or miniature cafe perhaps?

This Kitchen Diner display shows the two new paintings, Adrian made me the table, from scratch using wood we had left from building The Gallery and some picture frames, I just love it, I love miniatures and especially unique things, also shown is a beautiful dresser, which was a gift from our Aunt, which is a 1:12th Jane Newman.

How to paint a dolls house street scene :: Posted by: Hazel on April 13th, 2020

Painting A Dollhouse Miniature Street Landscape Window shopping dolls house picture

Window Shopping

Today I thought I would paint a street scene, I have painted this type of pictures in the past and I do love the challeng.

As I was painting this piece seemed to evolve and I’m calling it “Window Shopping” the lady is out walking her dog and looking at the dresses in the boutique windows.

It’s set in Spring and the blossom is in the tree and the window boxes are trailing pretty flowers.

On Display in The Gallery

The finished piece is shown here on display in my miniature 1:12th Art Gallery. It is 1 5/8th by 2 3/4 inches in size, painted on semi sheen card in encaustic wax paint.

I took some photographs as I started and then got a little carried away so the progress jumps a bit, but I hope you can see how it was painted.

How “The Wedding Store” development came to be ……

I was a web developer and did graphic design for many years and although my art is my passion as well as my work now I do still tinker with the digital too.

I created these wall murals to be the back drop for my new collection of wedding paintings. The brides …. Boho Bride – Spring Bride – La Bella Bride take center stage the walls also show my newest paintings of dressed miniature mannequin paintings.

The Wedding Store Miniature diorama

Boho Bride Spring Bride and La Bella Bride are centre stage.

The walls have lots of mannequin dressed in bride dresses ….. not all brides wear white how about a black or red wedding dress?
