New Dollhouse Miniature Paintings and Commissioned Art :: Posted by: Hazel on October 9th, 2019

New Dollhouse and Miniature Painting Commissioned Art

I have been very busy with new paintings and lots of exciting and challenging commissions.  I haven’t had as much time as usual to do many blog posts so I’m doing one today to catch up and to show just some of what’s been going on ……

 

Stag and Doe miniature paintings

Stag and Doe

There is a little story behind these two miniature paintings which I was commissioned to paint a few weeks ago.

These “Moonlight Landscapes” are dollhouse size, as you can see, on display above  in my 1 12th size Art Gallery, but they are not going into a dolls house, the owners don’t even have a miniature property!

Framed size 2 x 21/2 inches the tiny pieces of art are going to be displayed in a cabinet. There is more to this story which I will share next month, as I was also commissioned by this couple to paint for their wedding, in fact their wedding stationery is very unique….. and I will be blogging about that in future.

Varied and Electic

Last month saw an array of commission requested, all varied and fun challenges…..

The Donut Hole – The Brief

“Hi Hazel. Could you please paint me a sign for my bakery? It will need to hang on the wall. I would like it to read “The Donut Hole” Maybe paint a couple donuts on it?”

I painted two mixed media pieces so Darlene had a choice and she had the both. The text is printed on using my own design on the computer and the I painted around with my encaustic wax paint.


Amberly Willow is a bjd (Ball Jointed Doll) doll who’s owner asked me to design and paint an A Board sign for her miniature dolls shop, in the style of a specific type of dolls, doll, yes there are beautiful dolls for your doll.  The miniature doll paintings has also gone to this collector in Maryland USA.


The Parisian Boutique street scene, with hat and dress shops in the foreground and the Eiffel  Tower  in the distance was a commission that is now in America and is going to be in a “ Paris Hat and Clothing Store” the dollhouse owner is creating. This piece is framed in a handmade wooden frame made especially for me by a UK craftsman.


The Gentleman Department. These are the latest paintings for a collector of my work, Tricia is building a haberdashery store with both ladies and gentlemen departments, these are the latest additions, Men’s accessories and ties and hanker chiefs.  Tricia properties have featured in my blog before and the haberdashery store will be, in the future. I’m loving the challenges I’m set by Tricia.


Maybe would you like to commission a miniature painting ?

Art In Wax Painting Highland Cows – First Commission of 2017 :: Posted by: Hazel on January 3rd, 2017

First Commission of 2017

Highland Cow – Modern Dolls House Art

Happy New Year to all my blog followers.

I was thinking of a subject for the first blog post of the new year when I received a commission to paint a miniature highland cow for a dolls house owner in Scotland, so I thought the first commission of the year would make a great first blog post of 2017.

Commissioned Art For Modern Dolls House

The miniature collector asked if I could paint a highland Cow picture for her dolls house, as this is a her favourite animal and she has several pictures in her home and it would be fun to have a miniature painting for her miniature property.

I painted two for choice and she has order both, the landscape has the cow in a heather filled grassland, this is an impressionist piece and has been supplied in a black wooden frame size 3 x 4 inches. The other piece of art is a on encaustic cream gloss card and is a modern, more of a portrait style just 2 1/2 inches high.

The photos shown here are on display in my own miniature property : The Gallery which is my 1:12 scale art gallery.

Original Art Gifts :: Posted by: Hazel on November 30th, 2011

Original Art : Flowers in wax as gifts

Encaustic Art – Mini Series

I am loving painting these small series of paintings I am doing at the moment, having just finish a set of three herb paintings for our kitchen, I was asked if I would paint some 6 x 4 paintings to be given as Christmas gifts. I have now finished the set of six paintings. Each painting is unique, three are flowers in pots / vases and three are florals : Yellow Roses, Freesia and a colourful Daisy.

Something a bit different

I am showing three of the paintings below these are a mix of flowers. They are to be given as Christmas presents by someone who wants to give “something a bit different this year”, she is giving each of them with a mini display easel, thus making them a bit more quirky than if they were just framed.

Displaying Art In Wax

Encaustic paintings, i.e paintings created in wax, can be displayed without framing I personally love seeing these smaller pictures displayed this way as the sheen and texture really shows. Art In Wax can also be framed and looks good in a mount and frame, it is best to keep the wax from touching the surface of the glass as this could effect the painting.
