In Progress: Purple and House

As always, I'm working on several projects at once. One is a monochromatic doll for the ADO (Art Dolls Only) challenge. She does have a few other colors, but this one is going to be mostly purple. I just couldn't quite bring myself to paint purple skin or lips, but she does have purple eyes. I've got several different shades of purple to try for hair.
The second is going to be a house-doll. I was asked to make a house for a fundraiser for OffCenter, a local art studio. Brought a little crooked house home, and my husband built a little crooked porch on it. Now I think I'm going to add arms, legs, and a head.

And my third project is a "Nouveau Retablo" for another fundraiser - this one to benefit the New Mexico Hispanic Women's Council and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Right now, it's just a piece of wood, so I didn't think it would be too interesting. I'm thinking of a doll-type relief sculpture on the wood with lots of bright colors.... More soon!

What a great idea for your crooked house. This will be very different for you. I can't wait to see it. I wonder what color theme you will use.
