HAPPY ALMOST FALL 

I love fall; the cool air, the warm colors, the apples and pumpkins, the slightly slower pace.  It's my favorite time of year.  This year I finally set up a web site: tsmastroart.com.  It up and running, but I have a lot more to add to it, so check back often.

coming up soon 
October 8-11: the MECA COLLECT ART SALE

Last years sale was awesome, great art work for a good cause!  This year should be even better in MECA's new ARTISTS AT WORK space.  I will have some of my recent enamel wall art for sale.
from the FALLACY series
enamel on fold formed copper on panel
4x4 panel 3x3 enamel


I cut back on the craft shows/fairs this year, but I plan to be at the MECA Holiday Sale again this December.  Check back later on for details.

Thanks and enjoy!

Spring is here. Is it? Almost...

I've been doing some Spring cleaning of sorts.  You will no longer find me set up at most of the craft shows I have done the past several years.  I am limiting my regular jewelry representation to the Hole in the Wall in Raymond, and Aterra in Westbrook, both in Maine. 
Hole in the Wall Studioworks in Raymond


Aterra will be opening soon on Main Street in Westbrook.  More info to follow....
Of course, if I have a surprise event or show I will post it here.

HAPPY SPRING!

Hello, is everyone enjoying their winter?  Actually, I am.  Although it has been bitterly cold and somewhat messy on the roads ( I couldn't make it to the Picnic Holiday Sale due to snow) I've been having a pleasant winter.  No cabin fever as of yet.  Winter is a good time to experiment in the studio, try out all those ideas that came into my head but didn't have time for the rest of the year. It's also a good time to catch up on things you've been meaning to get done, organizing and such.

SORRY FOLKS

I'm looking out the window at all the snow we got here, especially on the road, and I've decided it's a good day to stay home.  That means I have to skip setting up at PICNIC today.  I know they say it's going to clear up this afternoon, but I'd have to be out in it now to get there in time for set up...  

If you want to see my jewelry it's always available at http://holeinthewallstudioworks.com/
or you can email me at tsmastro@maine.rr.com 

Anyway, I'll be hunkered in today.  Sorry to miss any of you who do make it out to PICNIC.  Have a good day and be safe.

The MECA Holiday Sale was a great success, and as always, a good time.  It's like old home days at the alma mater.

Now it's time to gear up for PICNIC  This Sunday 11 to 6 in that old wear house type building that hosts the boats shows and flower shows etc... 
58 Fore Street. There's always really cool crafts, vintage goodies and good eats if you get hungry.  Plus you can get a mug shot with a Yeti!

If you can't make it to PICNIC you can always find my enamel jewelry, encaustic paintings, and sometimes myself at the http://holeinthewallstudioworks.com/

Tonight, during the First Friday festivities in Portland, is the opening night of the MECA Holiday Sale.  I believe I will be located on the first floor near the Congress Street entrance.  You may have to look for me since these things sometime change at the last minute.


I had a fabulous time last night at the Celebrate 20 gala in the new Artist at Work space at MECA.  I met some nice people and caught up with some old friends.  And I sold a couple of my new special pendants to some lovely people.  The staff did a fabulous job.

Holiday Time!

The holidays are upon us, yikes, it's true!  This morning when I was just waking up I could see out my window how bare the trees are now and how white the sky looked, seemingly from the crisp cold air.  Visions of pfeffernusse and eggnog danced in my head.  Okay, it maybe too early for holiday treats, but not too early to get into my studio and ready for the holiday craft shows.  I'll be set up at three shows this season, and as always, I am well represented at the Hole in the Wall in Raymond.
