The Beach and the Bay

The middle of Summer is my favorite time of year. Fruits and vegetables are soaking up the sun in the garden and it's the time when our family takes camping trips anywhere near the water. Being outside unplugged from the hustle and bustle of everyday life can clear your mind, uplift your spirits and inspire your creativity. Here are two new paintings from this Summer of the beautiful Sonoma County, CA coastline near where I live.

New Show at NH2 Salon/Gallery and What a Week

Wow, what a week.
Saturday was the SF Etsy show that I organized in my furniture showroom in San Francisco. 20 great creative people coming together to show and sell their handmade products. I have a beautiful new necklace thanks to Velvet Otterhound. 

On Sunday we started our store closing sale at Shawna Stoney Showroom/Gallery. There was a lot of talking and selling going on these two days.

Here we are on Tuesday. This morning was spent in the beautiful NH2 Salon and Gallery Space in Novato. I hung 24 paintings that will be shown until October 2nd when the unsold lot will be sent on to the High Point furniture market.

Ready, Set, SF Etsy!

I just returned from a camping trip to the beautiful Mendocino Coast and it was dreamy. The beach and trees were fantastic. The sun was shining and I had an afternoon nap every day.
Now I'm recharged and ready for our next big event.
The SF Etsy team will have 21 vendors in the Shawna Stoney Showroom on Saturday, July 16th selling all sorts of handmade greatness at the Everything Handmade Summer Show. There is a lot of amazing talent here in the Bay Area.
