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?

Paintings are for sale.

2020 Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on January 14th, 2020

Just a few photos of the year …….

Dresses and Dressing Room Painting

The dresses and dressing room paintings are proving very popular and are such fun to paint .

I’ve painted many this year as well as Ladies, like these three chatting at the Ball. Others, the gentlemen suit piece was one of a collection now in a miniature property that is a shop with a men’s department. A dressing room for all occasions…..

Paintings of miniature dressing rooms

Flowers

Flowers and plants are still one of my favourite subjects to paint . The pink peonies and purple flowers was one of my first pieces of 2020

Something different and Quirky

I love painting different styles and topics …… sometimes an idea just comes and I am often challenged by commissions  which can lead to new ideas . Painting for miniature and dollhouse properties is so varied and great fun.

This vintage sewing machine picture is off  to Canada today to hang in a dollhouse sewing room in a period dolls house.

I have painted many ice creams and ice cream billboards recently, they have always been well received and this year more so, many of which are in America now, with more than one in a 1:12th scale ice cream parlour so I’m told.

Likewise the chocolates, were a fun challenge and several are in a miniature chocolate shop here the in the U.K.

And then there is everything else …..

I have sold over 200 paintings in 2019 so these are just a taster of some of them, some are sold others currently in my Etsy shop. Ballerina paintings, landscape pieces, winter and Spring, by the river, with the Eiffel Tower, fairies of course, a cup of coffee and cake …….

Plus not shown here but featured on my blog in other posts ….. an Art Deco Collection, Billboards, window displays  and much much more

Ballet Miniature Dolls House Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on September 7th, 2019

The Ballet

New collection of miniature art

Dollhouse ballerina paintings

Last week I painted 5 ballerina style paintings and put them on display in my miniature art gallery and one of my collectors asked if she could buy them, so they are off to Wales.

These were ….

Nutcracker ….. a Christmas tree in the background a tiny painting just 1 1/4 inches wide.

Swan Lake …… the blue one with a forest backdrop and a lake floor 2 x 1 1/2 inches

Cinderella …. her carriage just peeking into view  2 x 2 inches.

Plus “Ballet Practice” And Prima Ballerina with the curtailed call.

Great Fun to paint

They are great fun to paint and so I thought maybe do some other different ones, and they are proving very popular ….. some of these are still for sale in my etsy shop.

Swan Lake Balletahain this time with a green forest backdrop
Cinderella Ballerina a tiny piece with a carriage of course
Christmas Ballet ….. perhaps the nutcracker
Red Ballerina ….. taking a curtain call from the Firebird Ballet maybe ?

New Dollhouse Original Art Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on June 17th, 2019

New Miniature Art In Wax

It’s been a busy time in the Art In Wax studio, with lots of new miniature paintings, painted and now online in my Etsy store.

I’ve also had my techie hat on, and have now added a page to this, my website blog that connects to Etsy and my miniature art store. Please take a look …….
www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/miniature-dollhouse-art-shop/ and see all my latest listings.

So what have I been painting…..

Well what haven’t I been painting!!

if you read my blog or look at my Facebook page you will know I am an eclectic artist, I love to try new things and this is reflected in my art miniatures.

Dressing Rooms

My “dressing room “ paintings have been very popular and they are such fun to paint I couldn’t resist painting more.

As you can see pictured below there are some new pieces in this style, the two period style gowns in the ladies dressing room and the larger piece 3.5 x 2.5 inches has a beautiful blue cocktail dress in a lady’s boudoir , a very tiny 1:24th scale framed (1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches) has beautiful lilac and silver ball gown on a mannequin in a dressing room with a cabinet with a flower vase and a mirror on the wall.

Plus new today brides dressing room  with her gown on the mannequin.

Fairy Art and All sorts of other subjects

Steampunk fairies these are about  2 1/2 x 1 1/4 sizes one is slightly shorter than the other. And are media pieces. The cogs in the background I draw digitally then printed and waxed over before painting these gothic / steam punk fairy pieces. Both are holding a walking stick that’s really a wand 😉

……then we have a woodland fairy painting and a fairy godmother, not to mention a ballerina some very pretty flowers, landscapes, and cottage …..

The photos below are how the front page my shop looks today, why not check it out and see all the other dolls house, ACEO and other miniature art available to buy direct from me the artist.
