Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Mother’s Day 2014 :: Posted by: Hazel on February 26th, 2014

Mother’s Day Gifts and Cards

Mother’s Day 2014 here in the UK is on March 30th, so not long now …..

Mothering Sunday / Mothers Day

Mothering Sunday is often called Mothers Day is a tradition

According to Wikipedia ….. ref : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothering_Sunday

Mothering Sunday is a Christian holiday celebrated throughout Europe that falls on the 4th Sunday in Lent. Secularly, it became an occasion for honouring the mothers of children and giving them presents.[1] It is increasingly being called Mother’s Day, although that holiday has other origins.[1] In the UK, Mothering Sunday is celebrated in the same way as Mother’s Day is celebrated elsewhere.

Mother’s Day Presents

A card and or gift for Mother’s Day is a lovely way to show Mum a little bit of love and appreciation maybe. Chocolate and flowers are always appreciated but how about some flowers that will last a lot longer and be a keepsake too ……..

A piece of Art In Wax would make a wonderful gift for Mother’s Day.

Lots of choice

Lots to choose from and lots of options. From pretty vases of flowers to wildflower meadows, landscape and seascapes, sunsets and much more.

Art In Wax comes in many sizes to suit all sorts of budgets.

Postcard size art is very popular and a small piece of art with a mini easel can look great displayed like an ornament – no need to frame or hang on the wall.

Mini easels are not included with my paintings but are readily available in lots of stores – or I can supply one for a small additional fee – contact me before ordering.

Larger pieces of art are available and some come mounted ready to frame, others are just hard backed and can be mounted and framed or just framed without glass, which is great way to display encaustic work as you get to admire the sheen of the wax even more.

All art comes cellophane wrapped and with information about Art In Wax.

A gift that is also a talking point

I get great feedback about my artwork. The texture and the sheen of the wax pictures looks do much better in real life, photograph are good to show online but in real life the paintings are do much more!

One of the things people tell me the most often is that when they see a piece of Art In Wax how they are amazed that it is made from wax, and how it has been painted using hot wax, the wax has a great texture, sometimes raised sometimes smooth and glossy, colours are vibrant and they have a great sheen which adds to the depth of the picture.

Hand painted cards

I have just added a range of hand painted original art greetings card to the Art In Wax portfolio of art.

Each card is individual painted direct onto 250gsm pearl card stock. As this card is absorbent rather than gloss as with most of my paintings the effect is a bit different but very pretty I feel.

A unique and original piece of art on a card makes a great gift on its own but together with a piece of Art In Wax would make a lovely gift and keepsake.

Every piece of Art In Wax is unique, some subjects are similar as I love to paint flowers and landscapes but no two paintings are exactly identical.

Shop for Art In Wax

There are lots of places to buy Art In Wax ……..

Direct from Art In Wax :
In the Art In Wax Art Shop

Via international shopping outlet Etsy : www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ArtInWax

No two stores have the same pictures as they are all one off so worth checking all the stores to see the art for sale.

A Gift for all occasions that is also a keepsake

So if you are looking for a gift, for a special occasion, Mother’s Day, a Birthday, anniversary or just to say thank you maybe why not try something different and give some art as a gift this time ……..
