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.

Modern redheads here we come!

My mother always says can't you show something modern?
Well it is hard to find modern figurative artists.
So I went into the Internet hunting with this special mission to shoot  new 
and to me unknown modern painters who like red hair.

Here is what I found.
I started my hunting trip in Greece
Here I found a remarkably fine contemporary painter!
Take a look at this "Colorist" as we say in Danish 
when we want to say something is outstanding color wise.
An artist who turn colors into a gourmet experience.
I give you IRENE KANA
with some of her paintings of redheads.
Please look at her other wonderful motifs ,portraits landscapes, Seascapes etc

In Germany I found another artist with a dark side ,I could only find one single painting 
in a very exiting sketch book/diary of hers that showed Red hair.
But she is so interesting that I was captured for hours looking at her sketches.
Take a look at Jenny Wildfang

Well in Holland I found an interesting artist
named  Marieloes  Reek

Her paintings have another color harmony that is soft and sensual.

And my trip today ends with Serbia where a very interesting Artist
is found.

Vladimir Dunjik
His works reside in the same poetic mystic calm and monumental style that 
Andrey Remnev present. Where the eyes in the paintings are so dominant and 
dictate the feeling you move into.
