Red Umbrella Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on August 19th, 2020

The Rainy Day Collection

My new series of miniature painting is “The Rainy Day Collection”

This is a new collection I have been working on this week. Each has a lady with an umbrella, most have a red umbrella but one wanted to be different and hers is blue.

A fun set of paintings these pieces of my art are all one size, 1 1/4 x 2 inches each, a couple are shown framed, the frames are a new commission, I had them made for me by a U.K. craftsman to my bespoke specifications, the white frames are 2 1/4 by 1 1/2 inches , they are wood painted white, these are only in temporary at the moment but any can be supplied framed.

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  ……

Street Collection :: Posted by: Hazel on July 5th, 2020

NEW ….. The Street Collection

Miniature Paintings

I have been working on a new series of miniature paintings and I finished today. I’m calling this new set of six dolls houses size paintings “The Street Collection”

It could just as easily be the Village Collection or the Shop Collection but to me, today it feels like it’s all part of a street.

I hope you like them, I had a lot of fun with this project.

We have …… top row “Rose Café “ and “Boutique” – Ball Gowns and the Florist

Second Row is the “Pub” And then “Treats” – ice creams and Cakes, and on the corner “Joy” – dress shop

Each of these paintings are 2 by 2 1/4 inches, all original and painted using my encaustic Hot wax paints on card supports.The only addition was the Rose Café where I have added the text with a ink pen.

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?
Wedding and bride paintings
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
