Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Miniature Paintings Celebrating VE Day :: Posted by: Hazel on May 7th, 2020

Miniature Paintings Celebrating VE Day

These are my new paintings, there are three pieces with a theme, miniature dollhouse art, shown here in my 1:12th Art Gallery, inspired by the VE Day celebrations of VE 75 here in England in 2020. Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8 May 1945 is the day celebrating the end of World War II.

“Fly By Poppies”

Displayed and sold in a gold effect frame the overall size being 2 1/4 by 2 3/4 inches this landscape has aircraft flying over a poppy field.

“Wave”

Vintage clothed people standing in a poppy field, waving and waving flags as a plane flys over head, the size of this piece is 2 1/8 by 1 5/8th inches.

“Street Party”

A misty impression of a back drop with Big Ben in the distance gives this piece a sense of the day, Londoners having a party in the street dressed in vintage clothes, they could be of the time or more modern times dressed for a vintage fashion party, you decide. This piece 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches so a statement size piece for a dollhouse, I have sold many paintings this size for 1:12th or larger Scale dolls houses plus it is ACEO size so could be a nice addition for a collection.

American Miniaturist Magazine Features Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on January 16th, 2020

The American Miniaturist

The American Miniaturist Magazine is a global magazine featuring miniaturists and Dollhouse collectors from all over the world.

In the February 2020 issue I am delighted to say my miniature art gets a three page feature.

I was contacted last year via instagram by a feature writer for the magazine and invited to be interviewed and have an article written. The editor Auralea also got in touch and the feature was planned.

It is lovely to see my art in print, this is the first feature in a US magazine, having been featured in UK publications in the past and I’m very honoured to have been included in the American Miniaturist.

The article touches on how I first started painting for dolls’ houses which is a nice story so I thought I’d expand on that a little …..

It all began in 2013, I had been painting in encaustic for about two years then and selling small and larger art, when my husband who is a decorator (a very practical and varied talented man ) was working for a client who asked him if he would be able to help her build the basement for her Georgian Dolls House.

He took on the challenge.

And whilst he was working on her dolls’ house she asked him if I would paint her some pictures for her house. She wanted her miniature house to have original art, she already owned a larger piece of my work. She bought some tiny frames and I painted varies subjects to fit them, she asked for the paintings to be colour co-ordinated to fit in with certain decor in the rooms but otherwise I was left to my own imagination.

Following her taking receipt of the paintings I blogged about it and more requests and commissions came for dollhouse paintings. I starting selling tiny miniatures in my shops and as they say the rest is history…….. As far as I am aware pieces of my Art In Wax are currently in 18 countries spanned over 4 continents.

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…..

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
