A “mouse house” and mouse miniatures are a very popular theme I have discovered recently. I have seen them pop up in my Instagram time line on many occasions and talking to one of my collectors i was inspired to create this series of my Dollhouse miniature paintings in this theme.

Steampunk Miniature Dollhouse Art :: Posted by: Hazel on April 5th, 2020

Steampunk Miniature Art

My latest dolls house paintings have a different theme, I have painted steampunk pictures before but these have a different twist and are great fun to paint.

The initial four paintings were the Three lady paintings and a mannequin piece, which also feature in the video below, the steampunk mermaid and the larger ACEO Roses painting came later.

I also had a lot of fun making this set to show and display the paintings. The background I created with my own digital graphics then aged with coffee. I love steampunk style and the bracelet on the chair I’ve had many years, the other pieces are furniture I have acquired at fairs and online miniature shops.

Mixed Media Art

These are all painted onto a card I have printed with cogs etc, I have then layered clear then gold wax paint to give the effect. The the picture painted in my encaustic wax paint as usual.

Modern Miniature Dolls House Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on March 26th, 2020

Modern Miniature Dolls House Paintings

In these extraordinary times, staying at home, staying as safe as we can, caring for our family and being there at a distance for our friends and neighbours, we need to be mindful and for me creativity is so, so helpful.

So I’ve been in my studio this week, and this is what I’ve come up with, these are my latest miniature paintings. I love painting flowers and I’m sure I will be painting lots more over the coming weeks.

A New Collection “Flowers : Bringing The Outdoors In”

These four new flower pieces are painted in my Encaustic wax paint onto a mount card so 2mm deep, they have a modern canvas style, I’ve painted the background and the edges have some coverage by the card on the back is white. More paintings in different style will branch off from this collection I’m sure.

Miniature Dolls House Picture Hanging :: Posted by: Hazel on March 18th, 2020

The Gallery Miniature Art By Hazel Rayfield

So today I’ve been in The Gallery……

The Gallery is my 1:12th Miniature Art Gallery that my husband Adrian built for me a few years ago, and as I’m sure many miniature and dollhouse creators and collectors will be able to relate to …… it is forever evolving.

Adrian has never built a full miniature property before, he is very patient and meticulous making a beautiful miniature property that I have filled with tiny pieces of my art. I just love it !!!

As I say it is evolving and I like to add things and change thing around from time to time. Today I have been replacing some older pictures and adding a few in the gaps, there isn’t much wall space left now !

Just some of today’s changes, the parrot paintings replace the flowers pots and the roses replace the vase of blooms.

How about a little tour ….. Please see at the bottom of this post a tour of The Gallery today once I finished my picture hanging.

Filming yourself hanging a painting on the wall of a miniature property is not easy lol
