To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

New redheads

I start with a wonderful portrait
of Charles Weed 
A young American artist who lives in Denmark.
He has like many of the new American realist painters studied in Italy.
Color wise he leans towards Odd Nerdrum the Norwegian Genius in his portraits
 and against Corot in the landscapes. . 
Weed seek a soft  beauty and do not try to chock his audience with  his motifs.
There is a calmness and wonderful symmetry in his portraits.
And his treatment of grey tunes is admirable !

In an earlier post I showed another painting where he used this extremely beautiful
woman.  I'd love to own one of his paintings of this woman and look at it every day!
I think the combination of grayish pink and the sienna red hair is so very very beautiful.

Weed also made a drawing of this woman which is excellent,
 both poetical and serene.
