Some finished painted orders 😊🎨

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine and you 🧡

Like some of you know I have been working with some painted orders during the lasts weeks,- and now I’m finish, and actually very pleased with the results too 😊. The three costumers have already got a tiny little peek, and also seems to be pleasant with the result,- so then I can show it to you too 😊.

” A “touch” of Norway” 🏞

This winebottle was actually the most difficult to paint because I haven’t painted anything like this on a glassbottle before 🏞. I have painted and drawing mountains and ocean before, but just on canvas and paper- not around a bottle 🎨. But the costumer had a wish, and then I try my best to paint that. He/ she wanted Norwegian mountains and fjords/ sea. And mainly the colours blue and white.

I’m going to paint some more of this, because when I found out how to do it, how to create mountains and ocean it wasn’t to bad at all, actually quite fun 🏔😊.

Here you can see the painted winebottle from different directions 🏔🎨
“Red happiness”
“Blue happiness”

All this three is to one costumer. The costumer have chosen the colours and the images, and yes,- I did also painted a tiny suprice to the costumer as a “Thank you for the trust”- but I can’t show you that one today 😊. Of course I feel grateful for the trust someone gives me when they ask me to paint something specific for them 🧡.

“A touch of summer”
“Blue secret”

This two are to another costumer,- and they become so sweet and summery 🤗🌞. The colours and images are also chosen by the costumer, and I have put a tiny little painted secret to this one too 🎨, for the same reasons as the first one,- feeling so grateful for the trust 🤗.

Four different canvas,- colours chosen by the costumer 😊,- and image chosen by me 😊. Size 20×20 cm.

My third costumer order 6 canvas,- four in one size, and two in another size. The four small canvas the costumer was not sure what imagination he/ she wanted, but the colours. So I have tried my best to paint something that I in a way “imagine” the costumer 😊. And yes,- the different images have different meanings- but that’s for my costumer to know 😊 . And of course there’s a tiny painted suprice to this costumer as well 😊.

So as you can see,- I haven’t been bored during the lasts weeks,- but enjoying painting and creating 🎨😊.

And new “projects” and “products” are already placed on my painting table,- and some keywords are “glassbottles for men”. Actually something someone asked me for,- so then I try my very best to create something like that 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

The two last canvas for my third costumer- colours and image chosen by the costumer 😊. Size : 20× 50 cm

I’m going to have a tiny bit of “weekend” off from painting this weekend 🌞. I’m finish with three different painted orders,- two orders on glassbottles and one order on canvas 🎨. A really fun and creative challenge,- and the results became not to bad at all 😊🎨. Pleasant painter and pleasant costumers 🥰.

A basket with painted glassbottles 🧺🎨😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Yesterday I actually used the bus for the first time I have been living in Spain 😅🚃. Imagine that 😊. But I haven’t had any use to take the bus before yesterday,- and it all went very well 😅. And the bus trip went to La Cala in Mijas. The train doesn’t go to La Cala, but the bus does 🚃.

I was in La Cala, Mijas and delivered a basket with some painted glassbottles for sale in cafe Case Barella in La Cala 🎨.

The basket with painted glassbottles for sales you can find in Casa Barella in La Cala/ Mijas 😊

I have no idea how this sale will goes,- maybe very well and I can fill up the basket with new painted glassbottles in a couple of weeks? Or maybe it will be just standing there and nothing happens at all. I’m actually not sure at all,- but of course I hope and cross my fingers it will be some sale, hopefully a empty basket more then one time 🤞. But at the moment I haven’t to many expectations for to much sale. And at the same time as I feel I’m a bit “nervous” too, without manage to explain why or for what I have this, a kind of nervous feeling in my stomach,- it’s there and I have no idea why 🤔. Because I don’t need to be worried or nervous for this basket with painted glassbottles for sale,- it is what it is,- nothing more and nothing less. But maybe feels a bit like this because it’s actually the first time I have my painted glassbottles “out there” for a real sale like “all and everyone” can buy if they want?

This glassbottles are not with lights inside,- but it’s possible to buy solar lights to the bottles if the buyer are interested.

The solar light to the glassbottle 🌞💡

I’m going to use more and more solar lights in my painted bottles,- but first I need to be finish with all the string lights for the bottles with batteries. It’s a bit better for the environment to use solar lights, and it’s also easier for and to use. In general you don’t need to change batteries, just use the sun and light, and “woops” there’s lights inside the glassbottle for a while 💡.

But one step at the time,- I have a lots of cork string lights for glassbottles with batteries,- so I’m using that until it’s empty for that in my tiny little “storage” ( a a drawer ). But I have also slowly started to fill up an other drawer with solar lights 🌞.

And I think maybe tomorrow I’m ready to show you the different other painted orders I have been working on? 😊🎨. But before I can do that, I need to show them to my costumers 😊.

So yes,- I’m getting there,- getting finish with some painted products, and ready for some new 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Me from the bus trip to La Cala yesterday 😊

Yesterday I did deliver a basket with painted glassbottles for sale to CAFE CASA BARELLA in La Cala/ Mijas 🎨😊. I’m not sure how this sale will be or go,- but hopefully the basket will be empty so I can fill it up again with some more painted glassbottles 🤞😊.

Ebay or a webshop … or maybe a “pop up” sales exhibition… 🎨🤔

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m thinking about starting selling my oilpainted glassbottles and canvas for real 🤔. I have so much joy and happiness when I’m painting my things and stuffs- it’s like I’m in “my happy place”, or more correctly “my happy painting corner”, when Im playing around with the different colours both on the glassbottles as well as the canvas 🎨.

And,- it would be so nice if some of my paintings could give a tiny bit of the same joy and happiness as them gives me 🥰.

And another thing,- to be honest,- why not earn a bit money on something I really like to do? 🎨

But how to do that? How to sell? Where to start? Where to sell? How to advertise my product?  How to get buyers?  How to handle different processes in relation to sales? How to promote? The different procedures? The process and progress?

I have been thinking a bit about and around this, and also research a bit around my different questions about this “start to selling” and so on. I have at the moment mostly “researched” on webshop. But Ebay could also be a possibility, as well as arranged a “pop up sales exhibition” on my roof terrace in September or October? 🖼

Instagram is also a possibility, but there I have to little knowledge about how to do that. So I let that one rest for a while 🛏.

I need to have products to sell, and I need to have a kind of delivery system as well as a payment system too.

The products are in general under process closely “all the time” so that’s probably not the biggest challenge? 🤔🎨

Some of my “products”, more are under “production” and I have some canvas too 🖼

The “delivery system” I have checked that one up if I choose to “go for” a webshop, as well as Ebay. The public post office is not a very good solution. It’s slow/ late delivery and expensive, but there are other private delivery system, options and possibilities. I have actually asked and checked that one up a bit 📮

The payment would probably be easiest to do as e- commence payment, and I have checked that one up as well 💰.

Then it is the Webshop 💻. There’s a lots of work in front of me to create a my own and a good Webshop. But maybe that’s the best possibility for me? I know I need to organize a Webshop in a really good way, easy to use for the “webshoppers” as well as for me. At the same time as I need to keep in mind “the time” I’m going to use and need on a Webshop.

I need to check up and out Ebay a bit more, because there could also be a good possibility for selling my art, but in a different way then in a Webshop.

And a “drop up sales exhibition”- well,- I cant arranged something like that before in September or October anyway. It’s best to do something like that when I’m living on my own. My daughter is moving to Bali in March or April. It is this “Corona- situation” that’s slows down the moving process and plans. And during the Summertime and season I think it could be a bit to hot and warm on the terrace to actually have a fun, nice and relaxing “pop up sales exhibition”.

Of course I could have a “pop up sales exhibition” when my daughter still is living together with me, but this is her home too, and I want her to be and feel comfortable, free and relaxed in her home without “putting” to much of my “things” on her.

By the way,- all my art, both canvas as well as my painted glassbottles are numbered and signed by me, and everything that is for sale even has its own title / name “tag”.  Besides the ones I have given away, they have not been given a name or a title, or have their own “tag”, but they have their own number and my signature 📝. And they are also a personal gift made to the special one in my mind when I painted the “object” ( the glassbottle or canvas).

My oilpainted glassbottles with it’s own title, number and my signature ✒

So as you can see I have some “plans” with my paintings, but I’m not sure how “to do” the process yet. How to start? And what’s the best way to do this? Maybe it will be Ebay and a “pop up sales exhibition”, or a Webshop and a “pop up sales exhibition”? Or something totally else and different? 🤔

I’m in a process, and then I see what’s the progress in my process brings me 😊.

What do you think I should do with my art? Ebay? My own Webshop? Or just a “pop up sales exhibition” on my roof terrace? Or maybe you have some other suggestions? In case,- Im very happy and grateful if you want to share them with me 🌹.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Some of my glassbottles are ready to get a new “owner” 😊

I’m considering to start to sell my art for real 🎨. But I’m not sure what, where, how and so on 🤔. At the same time as I have starting to do some research about exactly this- what, where, how and so on, but Im open for suggestions. So if you have some,- you are very welcome to share them with me 😊🧡.

A touch of Christmas in January ❄🎄

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

As some of you know there wasn’t very much Christmas decorations in our home last Christmas ( the Christmas 2021). Not because I didn’t want to decorate, I actually didn’t have the energy or time to put the different decorations up. But we did have some green and red coloured candles- and a Norwegian Christmas- dinner 🥰. And a good dose of happiness and gratefulness 🥰. So it was a very nice and cozy Christmas- time also without any Christmas decorations 🎄.

I like the Christmas- time, and in general I also enjoy to decorate our home for the Christmas too, but sometimes life just happens around us 😊.

And I really enjoyed to paint some Christmas glassbottles in the middle of January, and even the Christmas- time is over, and it’s more then 11 months to next Christmas time 🎄.

A winebottle painted with some Christmas lights on the Christmas- tree 🎄.

I didn’t like this painted winebottle in the beginning- but look how cool it became 😊.

A Christmas Candle 🎄

But when my painting brushes are in the painting mood, ( and me as well 😊) there in general comes more then “just” one painted glassbottle 🎨. So it “showed up” more “Christmas- ish” glassbottles in my “atelie” then just this nice Christmas tree with candles 🕯.

Christmas flowers
It became 3 glassbottles with Christmas flowers 🎄
And some glassbottles with some other Christmas decorations too 🎄
And without any lights inside

Maybe and probably it’s a bit early for some Christmas painting and Christmas decorations 😅. But I didn’t manage to finish the glassbottles before the Christmas- time, on the other hand they are all ready for the next Christmas now 😊🎄.

I’m not sure how much I should “bother” you with my paintings and painting- work 🤔. It’s probably not so much of interest for you as it is for me- but during the last days I have add a lots of different painted winebottles and glassbottles in my Instagram account ArtByLailaS if you’re interesting to take a look 🎨😊. I haven’t share “all and every painted” glassbottle with you, because I don’t want to bored you to much.

But I’m still going to share some paintings with you now and then, because as you probably know and have recognize it’s a tiny bit of my “passion” this painting 🥰. But I will try my very best to be not to “overwhelming” in my post and textes to contain to much of my painting, glassbottles, winebottles and canvas 🎨. Yes- there’s some canvas “under” production too 🖼.

But,- if you want me to share a bit of my art,- please let me know,- because I’m very happy to do that,- share my passion, my art with you 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

A basket with some Christmas Oilpainted Decorated Glassbottles 🎨🎄

I know it’s just in the middle of January and the Christmas- time is both just finish as well as many months away 🎄. But I didn’t manage to finish my oilpainted Christmas glassbottles before now at days, so they are at least ready for this upcoming Christmas in the end of this year 🎨. And I just wanted to share some of the results with you today 😊

A tiny basket with a touch of the Norwegian wintertime ❄😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

It’s not very much snow and snowflakes during the wintertime South of Spain ❄. But it has been snowing. So fare not this winter, but last winter and actually the winter before that too it did snow for a tiny bit here in the area in South of Spain ❄.

Still the snow wasn’t quite the same as in Norway. Maybe because it felt like to have the beach covered with snow didn’t felt quite correct?

I admit I like the summertime best, but at the same time I need to say there’s something peaceful with the snow, the snowflakes when they are falling slowly from the sky.

And everything seems a bit lighter for a while when the nature is covered with white snow everywhere ❄. And it’s beautiful too.

It’s wintertime in Spain too at the moment, but without this white, soft and so cold and fresh snow. And even I don’t miss the cold, the snow, the Norwegian wintertime it’s still something and sometimes I do miss this peace the snow now and then brought ❄.

So I created me a basket with a touch of the magic wintertime in Norway ❄.

A oil painted basket with some snow crystals and snowflakes ❄.

In general the wintertime in the West coast of Norway wasn’t very magical. Mostly is was rain and wind, and snow that was just lying on the ground for just a tiny bit before it became to ice and in general more coloured up with the grey colour then the white.

But when the snow first stayed for a while and covered the nature in soft white colour, and all the sounds in it’s own way a kind of “disappeared”- then it felt like magic. And I need to admit I now and then do miss that kind of magic during the wintertime here in South of Spain.

I’m not going to bother you today either with a lots of different images and photos and movies from my painted glassbottles- but if you want to take a better look at each and one of them you will find the glassbottles in my Instagram account ArtByLailaS. And of course you are very welcome to take a look 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

A basket with a touch of the magical wintertime in Norway ❄

The wintertime in the West coast of Norway could be magical when the snowflakes was falling softly from the sky and covered the nature with something that felt like cold, soft cotton. I miss that kind of winter magic now and then,- so I tried to create my own winter magic ❄🎨.
