Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Norfolk Broads Paintings Father and Daughter :: Posted by: Hazel on June 23rd, 2019

Father and Daughter Artists.

Miniature and full size Norfolk Broads cottage
Norfolk Broads 1958

My dad has been painting, as a hobby for many many years, he painted this cottage landscape  in 2003 from a photographic slide he took when he was on a boating holiday on the Norfolk Broads in 1958.

I took the photograph of the painting on the fence in his garden a couple of weeks ago
The painting which we call “Dads Place” is approximately 32 x 24 inches and is actually one of his smaller pieces, Dad paints on hardboard in Acrylic and then seals with varnish so they can stay outside. Some come in for the winter. We jokingly call this his “hardboard art”

My Miniature Interpretation

So this week I have painted this cottage landscape picture, well my interpretation of it, in my style using my Encaustic paint and in miniature of course. My piece is 2 3\4 inches by 1 3/4 inches approximately.

If you have read my blog or Facebook feed, you will know I don’t paint copies of paintings, all my work is original, I’m inspired by what I see and what I have in my imagination…. I do work from photographs occasionally and my own doodles. But this was one of my most challenging paintings to date, I hope I do justice to Dad’s work.


My Dad is in his 80’s now and we thought it would be fun to show some of his work here today. So together with this picture in question these are a couple of Dads other hardboard art pieces. The pink windmill is called “Horning Mill” my husband and I actually stumbled upon it ourselves a few years ago when visiting Norfolk, great to see it in person after seeing the painting all these years.

New Horizons miniature dolls house art :: Posted by: Hazel on December 28th, 2018

New Horizons

Miniature Dolls House Art

I truly believe that art, as with beauty, is in the eye of the beholder and with this in mind my new miniature dollhouse paintings shown here say to me, that as we start a new year in 2019 I am looking at “New Horizons” and yet, I am also thinking about my roots and the ages that have gone before.

The strength of the old tree still standing strong, younger trees growing new branches and also to know the new life coming in the blooms of Spring leaves …..

What do you see ?

I am hoping these new pieces of my miniature art will mean and show different things to different people …… I know what I see …… But what do you see ?Original miniature art

My Latest Miniature Painting Commissions

Yosemite National Park

The brief for my newest commission piece was to paint a landscape, at the Park that was based on a photo Lady sent me. She also mentioned maybe at sunset so I decided to paint two for her to choose from and she has confirmed this morning she would like both.

So these two pieces of Miniature art will be off to the United States this week. These are dollhouse size paintings at 2 x 2 1/4 inches and 2 x 2 3/4 inches but this lady, who has bought my art in the past is a miniature collector and these pieces will go into her miniature collection.
