Miniature Moon Gazing Hare :: Posted by: Hazel on November 9th, 2021

Tree of Life …… Moon Gazing Hare


How I came to paint Moon Gazing Hares

Recently one of my miniature art collectors , a lovely Lady named Sarah, mentioned to me about painting a “Moon Gazing Hare” I didn’t know of this phrase specifically, I have seen many hare in the moonlight style paintings, so I did some research and found a “meaning” that says they can represent “New Beginnings” and “Good Fortune” in come cultural beliefs.

This lead me to think about my own  “Tree of Life” paintings. These are always very popular, although I don’t paint them often.

All my art has a “piece of me” in them, and for me my art is all about how it flows, from my imagination to the painting I am creating ….. yes OK ! “flow” a little pun I know as I paint in molten wax 😉

I digress …..Well, according to Google “Tree of Life” symbolism, among other things can represent “Uniqueness” and “Individual Beauty”.

So I thought wow, what better combination……

“New Beginnings”  ::  “Good Fortune”  ::  “Uniqueness”  ::  “Individual Beauty”

These are the results, what I had in my imagination …….

So what do you think ? …… did it flow ?

My “Tree of Life” painting series originally in 2014 was ……

Inspired by this thought I had ……. And we updated it 6 years later.

“We are all branches in our own trees,

some entwine more than others,

some have lots of branches off them,

and others are more single

but they are all connected

and have the same root structure …… Family”

Hazel Rayfield 2014

“And when all our trees come together as a forest

we can weather any storm ……. “

A Miniature “Tree of Life” Art In Wax Collection

I painted a wall art size Tree of Life exhibition collection in 2014 for my website, which can be found online @ https://www.artinwax.co.uk/exhibit-tree-of-life.php and I have now painted a miniature collection in a similar theme, they are great fun to paint but more tricky this small.

I do like to see if I can paint my larger pictures in miniature and have done many over the past five years of Art In Wax. This was a fun challenge I set myself as a miniature artist. I hope you like the tiny paintings. Please leave a comment below 🙂

Tree of Life Art Exhibit Poster

Art In Wax : Online Exhibition Tree of Life

New online exhibit @ Art In Wax

I recently painted a couple of pictures in the style of a “Tree of Life” and showed them on Facebook, they had a great response and I thought it would be fun to have a small series of these pictures featured on my website exhibits page …….

I was inspired when I painted the first picture and sent this message to my niece …..

We are all branches in our own trees, some entwine more than others, some have lots of branches off them, and others are more single but they are all connected and have the same root structure …… Family

Hazel Rayfield 2014

And like Families my new series of Tree paintings are all different ……

Tree of Life Art

Please visit the new online exhibition to view the paintings : Tree of Life Paintings

The paintings are mostly A5 in size, the ones on a white background are painted using Encaustic hot wax on specialist gloss card, I have left the background plain to enhance the tree as the main subject. The black background paintings are on a matt black mount board and have a very different effect as they are absorbent and the wax is partly absorbed into the board, I really like this effect and have used white and silver wax on these monochrome style trees to give a wonder simmer to the leaves.

Exhibit Paintings For Sale

The exhibit paintings are for sale please contact me for information on sizes, prices etc.
