I’m getting there 😊🎨

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

Some weeks ago, closely a mont ago, to more correctly, I got some painting orders. Five glassbottles and six canvas 🎨. A creative challenge I have and still do enjoy to work with,- but of course and unfortunately, it takes a bit longer time to paint and finish a order like this when I’m painting in between my ordinary job 😊. And inbetween the painting I have also felt on this performance anxiety. What if my customer don’t like the finish product? 😳

I do like the results more and more, and better and better as closer I’m getting to the end of this painting project. But that doesn’t mean my customer will like it.

When I’m finish with both the canvas as well as the glassbottles I’m going to show you the results,- but my customer will get a tiny little peek first of all 😊. And I’m going to be finish during this week- something I’m actually looking forward too 😊.

If the painting was my ordinary job I haven’t use so much time on a order like this as I have used now. And it’s also this sudden summer heat that “showed up” makes the oilpanting dry a bit slower, and then it’s a bit difficult to finish with not dry painting 🌞. But I did find a tiny solution on that one,- fan 🌬. So during the last days the painting has been easier to do, because the painting is “working” a bit better and smoother together with me, and dry a bit faste when I’m using the fan 😊🎨.

I need to admit that I’m dreaming of, and have some small wishes and thoughts that my mainly and ordinary job actually could be to just paint 🎨. I’m trying to find some solutions to maybe manage that, this dream and wish can be and will be true, but it’s not easy 😊. And one thing I know,- even I really enjoy painting I also like to have food on the table 🍲🥤, And to be an artist it’s not necessarily the same as to get in enough money for covering the daily and monthly expenses. And one thing I’m sure of,- I’m not going down that road again where I’m struggling my ass off to be able to cover and pay for the different expenses 💰.

During this last weeks I have also prepared a basket with different painted glassbottles that will be for sale in Case Barella/ La Cala/ Mijas 🎨🧺. I’m going to deliver the basket with the painted glassbottles tomorrow,- and need to admit I’m a bit excited about that, and how the salsa will go 😊.

So that’s what I have been doing the last days and week,- my ordinary job and finish some different of painted glassbottles and some canvas as well 🎨😊.

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 the products from the order I’m working on now at days,- not quite finish,- but very soon 😊

I have been working a bit with some painted orders during the last days and week,- and soon “I getting there”- getting finished oilpainted products I can deliver to some customers 😊. But the heat slowed the painting process a bit down, until I found a fan 🌬😊. And the “windy air” dry the painting a bit faster then the sun 🌬🌞.

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 🕯.

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 😊

Maybe a nice surprise to some aunts and uncles? 🎨🌹

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

One week before Christmas I did send up some gifts to my family in Norway. Just painted glassbottles, but still something personal to each and one of them 😊. The gifts are still not arrived to Norway yet 😳,- but I did check with the post office today- so I know they are under transport- phu 😊. Just some delayed delivery with the transport- and that was good to know. The gifts will probably be in Norway next week 😊.

So then I took the chance today and sent up something more- but this time to a couple of aunts and uncles in Norway 😊. Painted, personal and one of a kind – and glassbottles of course 😊.

I have actually in a way 8 aunts and 8 uncles. But that’s not quite correct. My mam have 3 sisters and 3 brothers, and my dad have 2 sisters- and they are all married- so then I in one way have 8 aunts and 8 uncles, but some of them are married into the family 👫. And of course I also have some cousins too.

By the way,- one of my “uncles” did past away some years ago, so it’s 7 uncles and 8 aunts now.

I don’t have contact with them all, not all my aunts and uncles, or my cousins either. But there’s a couple of aunts and uncles I have contact with, and they have always ment something special for me, since I was a child, and I wanted to “show” that to them in form of a personal gift 🎁. Maybe they will like it, maybe not. And they don’t know I have sent anything up to Norway to them either,- so I hope it will be a nice surprise for them 🤞. And if the post office gave me the correct information today, my aunts and uncles will receive their gifts in around 2 or 3 weeks 😊.

This is to one of my aunts and her husband,- I have always “looked at” her husband as my uncle.

This glassbottle represents and remind me about one of my aunt and how happy, sparkling and caring she is. Then it became something in happy colours together with some sparkling effects 😊.

The glassbottle “all the way around” 😊
Just some few details from the glassbottle
And the glassbottle with lights inside 💡

My next aunt is also happy and caring as well as with a soft harmony mind. So then it became something with soft harmony- in a colour I have got an impression that she likes 😊.

Pink painted small roses to my aunt number two, and of course her husband too 😊.
And then “the all around show”- with a bit “shaking” start 😊
Some few details
And of course also with some lights inside 💡

And my third aunt is not my real aunt of blood,- she is married together with one of my mam’s brothers, but she have always felt like a real aunt for me 🧡. She is also gentle and kind, caring and in her own way so powerful,- so then it became a glassbottle with some “powerful colours” 😊.

Look at this glassbottle with the different powerful colours 😊
And of course a tiny “all around look” 😊
Some few details as well

What do you think? Do you think this will be s nice surprise from me to some aunts and uncles I have in Norway? 🎁

I feeling lucky and grateful for having this aunts and uncles in my life,- even it’s “ages” since I saw them 🧡.

I’m going to send up a couple of more glassbottles,- but that will not be before probably during February or March- and then it is to some friends in Norway that I think deserve a tiny bit “special” and personal attention from me. But one thing at the time- it takes a bit of time to paint the glassbottles too 😊🎨. And I think I want to ask my friends two questions before I start working on glassbottles to them,- and that’s their favourite colour and favourite image and illustrations 🖼.

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 😊

And the last one for today- with lights inside 💡

Today I sent up some more oilpainted glassbottles to Norway. This time it was to some aunts and uncles I care for 🧡. So in a couple of weeks I hope they think they get a nice surprise in the mail box from me 🎨😊. If you want to take a tiny look,- you will find the different glassbottles in my text 😊.

To my two sisters, and to my parents as well 😊🎁

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

It’s just not four of my nieces I have sent up some “one of a kind” oilpainted glassbottles too. I have also painted to my two sisters and my parents as well 😊.

I’m the oldest of three sisters, but I need to admit I’m not always feel like that 😅. It seems that both of my sisters have a bit more and better control and overview over their lifes then I have 😅. Anyway that’s the way it is.

My youngest sister’s favourite colour is blue, so then blue it became 🎨. Blue roses 🌹

Some few details from the blue rose glassbottle to my youngest sister 🌹
Snd here you can see the bottle “all the way around “
With lights inside 💡
And the basket “filled” with glassbottles to my youngest sister and her four daughters 🥰.

I forgot to ask my oldest sister about her favourite colour 😳. But I know she like to drink both red wine as well as white wine,- so then if became a white wine glassbottle with red wine grapes 🍇🍷.

And also this bottle “all the way around” 😊
And with lights inside too 💡

I didn’t ask my parents about their favourite colour either,- but maybe I paint one glassbottle each to them one day, and then they can get a glassbottle each with their favourite colour. This time it’s just a glassbottle with a touch of soft harmony 😊.

Look at this- just soft harmony – to my parents from me 😊
And of course,- a tiny “all around watch” on this bottle too 😊.

Are you tired of “reading” about my oil painted glassbottles now? 😅 I’m going to give you a break from my bottles after this post,- but it can be a bit “glassbottles- posts” this year- just so you know 😊. But I’m going to give you a tiny break now from “painted glassbottles textes” that actually contains very little text, but instead some photos 🎨.

I still hope you are enjoying my art in one or another way. And I really hope my family in Norway will have some kind joy from this gifts. It’s a personal gift to each of them, unique and one of a kind- just like they all are unique and one of a kind 🥰.

The gifts are still “on the road” on the way to Norway, I’m actually “traking” the post daily to make sure the gifts will arrive safely to each and every one of my family members 🧡. But it have take a big of time, closely 4 weeks since I sent it 😳. But it’s probably delayed because of the “Christmas traffic” with Christmas gifts sent “here and there” 🎁.

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 😊

And some details from the painted winebottle to my parents 😊🎨

My youngest sister’s favourite colour is blue- so then blue it is 🎨. My oldest sister like both red wine as well as white wine- so then it became a “touchy” painted mix of both of it 🍇🍷. And my parents- I’m sending them a lots of love and soft harmony 🌹. Do you want to see? You find the different “creative creatures” in my post 😊.

I will probably do it again and again… 😊

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

My three baby ducks are young adults children now and in general also live on their own,- but now and then they still need to live in my home for a period and more. And I’m starting to wonder if that’s a part of my new “era” and epoch in my life? To not live totally “on my own” for to long …. at least not yet 😊.

“My three baby” ducks on their way out in the world,- but now and then they turn back home to their mammi 🥰

I’m on my own again now, my home is “empty” and it’s just me in the house, and I need to admit it’s nice and quiet, just the way I like to have it now at days in my home, in my life. But this time I think I’m not going to “brag” to much over my new epoch and era in my life,- this “part” where I think I’m going to live alone in my home because my children has moved out …. again 😅. I have already done that one a couple of times,- and it wasn’t quite “correct”.

I also need to admit that I’m going to do this over and over and over again,- let my kids live in my home for a while, for a period when ever they need this kind of help from me. No matter how tired I’m or how “needy” I’m with this focus on my self, my life and my time. And my children know that- I’m here and I will be here as long as they need me – no matter how, why, when and what 🧡.

And I know I’m incredibly lucky that have this possibility to help my children in this way,- let them have a bed to sleep in, food on the table now and then when they need it, and need this kind of help from me 🧡.

And I know I’m incredibly lucky that have this three children that obviously feel in their own a kind of safty and comfort with coming back and back and back again to their mammi’s home when they need this kind of help ❤. And I’m incredibly grateful for exactly this,- that my children actually feel in a way safe and comfortable around me, and loved by me- if not I don’t think they have come back home again as they do now and then ❤.

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 🧡

My three “baby ducks” needs now and then to be back in the home with their mammi- and even I’m finish with all “this” my children will always be welcome to stay in my home whenever they need it ❤.
