New in The Gallery today.

“The Lone Wolf” Miniature Art Exhibition

Recently I’ve been working on these new Owl paintings and wanted to wait until I had a set to show them……. I hope you like them.

The lone wolf in the moonlight adds a quirky touch to the exhibition I think.

Dolls House Miniature Art Commissions :: Posted by: Hazel on December 1st, 2020

Art Commissions

Miniature Art For Your Dollhouse

These are some of my recent commissioned miniature dolls house art paintings.

Commission art generally can be a challenge,  and over the past couple of months these challenges put to me by some of my collectors has been great fun and has really stretched me.

So ……. this blog post shows some of my recent commission pieces. All painted in my Encaustic wax paint of course.

Here we have a very diverse mix of themes and subjects. Which are going into dollhouses and miniature properties both here in England and around the world. These pieces are in fact going to several collectors on three different continents. How cool is that !!!!!

As you can see below …..

We have a collection of three dolly paintings.

These are in the style of vintage boudoir dolls and framed in antique style frames. This is my most recent commission project, a lovely collector whom has many of my miniature paintings, asked me to paint these beautiful dolls for her miniature dollhouse. I painted the backgrounds in gold and bronze wax paint to give a vintage feel and the frames adds to the overall classic look.

These Dolly’s which all have names by the way,  was one of my most fun and challenging of projects To date. They are Dolly Sophia in pink, Dolly Bluebell in Blue and cutie Dolly Claire in yellow.

The Gentlemans Department

The top hat and other paintings shown in my 1:12th scale Art Gallery above were painted for a collector in Wales for her haberdashery store which has a Gentleman’s department on the first floor.

The French Connection !

Then we have a set of four paintings commissioned of the french city Saint-Malo in Brittany, the lady sent me photographs and I painted my impressions of the beautiful port city.

Iconic USA

The paintings of the New York sky lines below show one including the State of Liberty were commissions by a lady in England to go into her Hotel (Dolls House size) in her themed suite.

Michelle has many of my paintings in her hotel with had rooms in various themes. And it a very substantial miniature property.

The paintings of the Washington Monument and the Martin Luthier King Junior memorial which are very tiny indeed, are now in a dollhouse state side.

Beautiful Lady 

This beautiful African Lady painting has also gone to America which was commissioned by a collector of African style art, both large and in miniature.

This is one of my favourite paintings….. I have lots of favourites ….. but with this piece, the paint flowed and she came to life, I just loved painting her

Girl in the rain dollhouse art

I do love this quote

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
it’s about learning to dance in the rain”

The videos show the miniature paintings on Display in my art gallery 1:12th scale, and I thought this quote worked so well with the subject and also the times we are currently living in  ……

Miniature Art Commission Canada Rocky Mountains :: Posted by: Hazel on July 15th, 2020

Commissioning Miniature ArtFour paintings of Canadian winter scenes

New Commission Canadian Landscape Paintings

Today I airmailed four miniature paintings to Ottawa.

Last week I was contacted by lady in Canada who has a growing “little collection” of my miniature paintings, and whom I painted a special commission in a January.

This time she sent me photographs she had taken in Canada spanning the last 10 years, the brief being could I paint her a set of miniature paintings in the style of these landscape scenes……

As you will be aware if you have read my blog before, I’m an original artist, so when, like in this case, working from photos, the paintings still have a style of my own work and therefore I like to think of it as giving an impression of the scene not a direct copy, thus making it an original piece of my “Art In Wax”.

This commission was a challenge I must admit, when I first saw the photos I thought “this is going to be a fun project” which it was, I love to paint sunsets and winter landscapes, however it was the sunset that was the most challenging of these and took as many hours as the others paintings all put together….. it’s funny how that happens sometimes, but I’m happy with the results and so is the buyers I’m really happy to say.

To quote her …. “Wow – I love them all – Thank you so much”

4 paintings with the photos taken from

A few facts …..

The mountain landscape I’m told the photograph was taken in Jasper BC is the largest of the paintings and 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. The lady asked me to frame this one so framed the overall size is 4 x 3 inches

Snow river, as I’m calling it was the smallest and is 2 x 1 5/8th inches

Sunset lake, a real challenge ! Is 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches

Autumn Lane, the path leading off into the distance is 2 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches.

Commissioning Hazel Rayfield
