New Miniature Dolls House Size Collectible Art

I thought it might be good to show a few of my new paintings today.

I am getting a lot of studio time at the moment, and both painting new and challenging pieces of my miniature art but also having some fun with favourites……

I have chosen just a few of my more recent pieces to show here, I hope you like them.

The Rock and Roll Fairies

A new collection called “Band of Fairies” was launched earlier this month and I’m showing four of these below, but there are others which can be seen on either my Facebook or Instagram feeds for May 2020 …… the ones shown here are : Rock Chick Fairy, Cello Fairy, Rockin It Fairy Duo And Pink Rock Fairy.

New this week 16th May 2020

“May Cattle” is a Highland Cow abstract modern miniature style with lots of pink and colourful paint. Shown here in my 1:12th scale art gallery the painting is 2 x 1 1/2inches

Another Highland Cow abstract painting This is “Golden Cow” and at 2 x 2 1/4 inches is prefect for 1:12th size properties. It has a slightly distressed background on a textured Matt card, the cow Is painted in gold tones and makes this a real statement piece and painted on a mount card support which is 2mm deep so lovely when on the wall.

I also painted the Paris View and winter doe in the forest this week …. as you will know if you follow my work, I’m an eclectic artist I paint what the mood takes me.

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.

A New Banner and New Paintings

Original Art for Dollhouse and Miniature Art Collectors

I decided it was time to revisit my Etsy banner, after all this is the shop sign to my online store. I like to keep the overall look in keeping with my branding naturally but the new blue background and update on the paintings brings a feel of the winter season.

Lots of New Paintings

It has been a great last quarter for my Art In Wax miniatures and many commissions too, my billboard mixed media pieces are proving especially popular for miniature ice cream parlour, some local but many going to the US.

This week I have been  painting winter landscapes, it’s turned colder here this week, so maybe I’ve been subliminally inspired !

Etsy and Art In Wax

Etsy plays a very important role in my business with many international orders coming via this market place.

Visit my Etsy Store @ Art In Wax on Etsy

Not all pictures make it onto Etsy ! I often show my paintings and some times work in progress pictures on Facebook and then they don’t always make it to Etsy, as the paintings are sold direct via Facebook and social media.

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…..

Dollhouse paintings
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 ?

Please  contact me to discuss your request
