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.

Dollhouse Birdcage Painting :: Posted by: Hazel on January 23rd, 2019

The Birdcage Collection

I do like to try new subjects and over the past week I have been playing around with ideas on the theme of including a birdcage into my paintings, birdcages are popular topics for paintings and home decor.

If you follow my blog or Facebook page you will know I am an artist with a passion for painting in encaustic wax paint and in miniature which is a challenge at times but great fun…… my point however is that I’m an eclectic artist, yes I love to paint flowers, landscapes, seascapes but I also like to challenge myself or be challenged by other subjects.

I hope you like these new pieces of my art, all original as always.

Blossom settings with the birdcage in the trees, flowers in a shabby chic style and a butterfly appears in one, and of course there had to be a fairy …… and she has let the bird out of the cage !!

Edit : the two blossom birdcage paintings are now sold, I showed them on facebook this afternoon and they are off to Wales to a collector tomorrow.

Dolls House Furniture Art Painting :: Posted by: Hazel on October 22nd, 2018

New Dolls House Furniture

Last weekend I went to the Rayleigh Dolls House Fair, shopping not selling. I have had a stand at the Dolls House fairs at The Mill in Rayleigh in the past but I haven’t done fairs in 3 years now and sell my work online or by direct contact and commission only now a days.

Setting the Scene

I like to show my paintings in the best way possible when displaying them for sale online. I often take photographs in my own 1:12th Art Gallery or in my 1:24th scale set. And I thought it might be fun to make a room setting as a lounge to show how they might look displayed on the wall.

And this is what I came up with.

There were some wonderful stalls at the fairs and I managed to get these and a few other bits and pieces including some new frames too.
