A blog about the stuff I have made, that I am making and that I will make sometime soon.

This is what I have been working on today. It is the first time in years I touched oil pastels and much to my dismay I had no black! wonder where I put it? So I tried mixing media by touching up with charcoal pencil and watercolor pencil. Neither one worked the way I wanted of course because you simply cannot mix water and oil and have it come out right! I am happy with her and now I will add some bling of course and that's all I can say about that for now, except I have to decide on what kind of bling I am to add.
One of the most frequent questions I get asked is about my choice of the name "Moonwillow". It comes from when I was a child. I was a "latchkey" kid before anyone knew what that was. In the front yard we had a big beautiful weeping willow, and I use to sit under it to feel safe. There I would draw, color, play with my barbies (usually making clothes and accessories for them). Later as I got a bit older I would wait there at night, until I could see my mama walking down the street to home from the bus stop that brought her home from work. I would sit and stare at the moon looking for the man in the moon and wonder if he was making cheese! I had a great brother and sister but they were older and not at home with me. Many a time I took refuge under that tree, so there you have it. The name MoonWillow.
