Today when interviewing some older members of my fathers family I found out that there
was and still is a dominance for red hair in all shades in my family.
My great grandfather was dark red haired , almost like dark mahogany,
two of his daughters
my grandmother Ellen and her sister Johanne both had red hair .
Johanne's only son Leif got his mothers red hair
One of Leif's two sons got red hair too.
But my great grandfather also had a son Otto who got 2 red haired children .
My grandmother Ellen's two children did not get red hair, but the daughter
my aunt has two sons with red hair
And Ellen's son my father got me who was red blond when younger
and my brother's daughter Anna has the most wonderful red hair
On my mothers side only my great grand father had red hair
And the I had a red haired Uncle who's only daughter got a red haired daughter
So don't blame me for the interest and love of red hair!
Since my great grandfather Christian Thomsen had dark red hair this post is for him.

This painter sees the finest and most fragile color tones, his paintings are outstanding with a
seldomly poetic gentleness. He always remember to paint the air the almost invisible factor in
reality that so few painters notice!
Marvelous drawing , so strong!

Here is one of his fine drawings
Many red haired persons get almost dark reddish brown when they get older, like this woman
Lipke is very popular in America .
I do not like the vulgarity in this and many others of his pictures
which makes the women look like horny nudes in male magazine photos .
He is a good painter though.

She can paint sensuality and sexuality without falling into a vulgar expression.
Her highlight make shape they don't lie on the skin like snail slime
