Five Miniature Stag Paintings

The Blue Stag which is framed in a Black wooden handmade frame and the silver Stag on a a dark green painted background in a White frame, wooden handmade as the other one are tiny at 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches. These are front loaded frames so the paintings will be stuck in.

The stag on the easel to the right is silver encaustic paint on a specialist black gloss card. And is the same size as the middle Stag which is very striking on a bronze card with a mix of black and silver wax paint making  this a very abstract style. They are approximately 1 3/4 by 1 3/8 inches each

And finally the front on stag, which is on white card and is 2 by 1 1/2 inches in size.

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.

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?

Art Deco Miniature Dolls House Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on November 25th, 2019

A new collection of miniature paintings

Art Deco

Today it’s just a quick post to show off  my latest miniature paintings.

This is my  new collection !  I’ve been working on it recently and it was launched online this weekend and it is getting lots of attention I’m thrilled to say, some of these are now sold, others are in my Etsy store and I painted a couple as commissions too.

I don’t like to give labels but these, new lady and dressing room pieces all have my interpretation of an Art Deco style to them. They work for both period or modern settings, I’ve had lots of fun painting dresses and fashion styling  ……. what’s not to love.

I have given some of them names …..

The top  row for example is

“cherry cocktail club” which is 2 3/4 inches by 2 1/4 inches in size

”the fan club” a mixed media piece, the fan in the background is one of my digital graphics printed onto card before painting

“cocktail bar” sees our lady in her flapper dress getting a glass of champagne from the barman in the art deco style setting

Dolls House Miniature Feature Caravan :: Posted by: Hazel on October 3rd, 2018

Featured Miniature Property

i am very excited to be featuring this wonderful miniature project on my blog today.

“The Californian RV”

This amazing miniature property is a Vintage style RV (recreational vehicle) or caravan as we call them here in the UK which has been created by one of my American miniature art collectors. Darlene has several of my paintings in her collection and this is her  second miniature property project and is a gift for her friend in California. The travel trailer kit is by Green leaf Dolls houses in the USA.

I asked Darlene about some of the elements that she created and she says ……

I did make the curtains and awning from from heavy scrapbook paper and I also put that same paper on picnic table. My friends RV park backs up to Plumes National Forest in Cannon Dam California. The trees there are huge with pinecones on them. I used some of the baby pinecones and pine needles from her property.

The detail is wonderful and a lot of work and time has gone into creating this miniature property, the RV or caravan as we say here in the UK is set in its own plot with garden accessories and a seating area.

The attention to detail in the miniature work is lovely I do like the hat on the bedpost. And of course a piece of my art features on the wall. The Egyptian style cat fits in perfectly to this setting.

This is the cat piece of art ….. it was part of a Egyptian themed set of paintings

Thank you Darlene for allowing me to share your project on my Blog. I do love seeing my art in its new home.
