Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Vintage Portrait Lady Dollhouse Art :: Posted by: Hazel on February 26th, 2021

Period portrait style Lady paintings

Miniature Dollhouse Vintage Style Art

These are my latest miniature paintings.

In a period portrait style, the ladies have beautiful dresses and are posing for the portrait.

Sisters Grace and Polly and Lady Edwina, below in Antique style frames were the first I painted this week, these I feel have an Edwardian style.

I then went on to paint the more close up ladies in their gorgeous hats.

Commission : Of a begone time

I showed these online and they are now sold. Following this I was contacted by a miniature collector who asked me to paint some more lady pictures in a style of the era of “Lady Antoinette”.

My paintings are in my style so although they have a feel of the period please allow for  my own artistic licence. Also I’m a fan of the TV series Outlander and they have a period in one season where they are in Paris at this same time period, so Lady Claire (below in the gold dress) was inspired by Claire in Outlander dress …..

Lady Emma  gold frame 2 1/2 x 3 inches

Lady Claire   gold frame  2 1/2 x 3 inches

Lady Florentine antique style frame 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Duchess Anna antique style frame 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Commission Doll House Art

I hope you enjoy seeing these miniature commission paintings, if you would like a commission painted especially for you please get in touch and we can discuss your ideas.

The Music Room Collection

A New Theme – Music Room

A recent commission for a set of paintings for a period dollhouse music room has lead me to paint some further pictures in this style.

The five pieces at the bottom are the commission pieces, and are on their way to Maryland USA.
The other pieces, the Music Room, the Recital, Ballet Practice and the Lady at The Harp,  I showed on Instagram and they are now sold too.

Commission a piece of miniature dollhouse art from a miniaturist artist :: Posted by: Hazel on January 8th, 2018

Commission a Piece of Original Miniature Art

Following on from my previous post, 2018 sees some changes to the Art In Wax focus, bringing my miniaturist work to the fore. Nearly all my work is paintings miniature now, with last year seeing them go to more countries than ever before. At the last count my Art is in 17 countries on 4 continents. I have to pinch myself when I think about it. Who knew !! when I started painting Encaustic how my journey would be. It has been and continues to be my passion to paint miniature art in Encaustic hot Wax paints.

Commission Page Update

I’ve been updating my website this weekend revamping the miniature art commissions page and as a result looking back at some of my sold paintings…… which reminds me …..

Maybe I should paint another a hot air balloon landscape, and perhaps a different style vintage caravan, I still love painting poppies, to think of something new for the seahorses, my “under the sea, dolphins and mermaids were popular a couple of years ago, but I haven’t painted any in a while…… I don’t know how I forgot them !

Good to look back

It seems at this time of year, the start of a new year with all the possibilities this will hold, that looking back is a fond occupation. I have enjoyed looking at the commissions I have done in the past, not all these paintings shown in this graphic were commissions but they are all sold, and with that in mind. If you see a piece of my art that is sold but would like one similar, it won’t be the same as each piece is unique and original, then why not get in touch and see if I can paint a piece of miniature original art …. just for you.

It is not as expensive as you may think……

Commissions can be a single piece or a set of two or more paintings, the cost is dependant on your requirements and will be quoted together with my payment terms before the commission is started. They don’t cost much more than the paintings I have already online.

I look forward to painting lots of commissions in 2018 ….. maybe one will be for you ?

4 years of Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on March 31st, 2015

4 years Art In Wax

Art In Wax 4 years on …..

Next weekend sees the 4th year anniversary of when I started to paint in wax. Blocks of Encaustic wax and heats tools were ordered and were delivered on the 5th April 2011, as it is also the date of Tax year end here in the UK it is an easy to remember date! I now have a wide and varied collection of heat tools, including several irons and stylus tools, my hotplate and heated air tool….. plus lots and lots of wax !

Art In Wax Evolving

My style and methods of working and painting in wax medium have evolved and developed over the years and my passion as an Encaustic artist has grown and grown.

Likewise, the Art In Wax website has expanded and now has Exhibiton pages which feature some of my painting subject series, we also have more shop sections for buying art direct from me the artist, including, a Wall Art section, and ACEO and a Miniature Dolls House Art section, plus the latest addition an Events page, which has information on the Events that we are attending to show my art, mostly miniature fairs at the moment, as this area of Art In Wax is where the most expansion has taken place, with miniature pieces of my Art now in many countries on three continents worldwide.

I have been painting in miniature a long time, with my ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) being very popular and in many collections and in 2013 I was asked to paint a commission for a lady who owns some of my larger art to paint a set of paintings tiny for her Dolls House, I then blogged about them, and that lead to more sales, then a feature in Dolls House and Miniature Scene magazine and now I sell as many Dolls House paintings as any other size. And since we started taking my Dolls House art to Dolls House and Miniatures fairs at the end of last year they have become even more popular.

I blogged about the first Dolls House fair here : www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/miniature-dolls-house-art-fair/

I may be a miniaturist artist at times but I still paint large and recently have been painting some even larger pictures as my A3 size pieces have been more popular than ever in 2015.

The Future @ Art In Wax

I have lots of plans for new paintings and expanding my range of painting subjects, this year, has seen lots of new themes, from flowers I haven’t painted before, to miniature steam trains and gypsy caravans in landscapes, from my tree of life series exhibition to unusual commissions : a silver tree on black, a bluebell cottage, pretty blue butterflies and pink lilies to name just a few.

These are just a few of my latest pictures, which will be online for sale soon – or contact me for more information if you would like them or to commission a similar piece.

Celebrating 4 years of Art In Wax
