WICHITA, KS - United States

Hi, Chrisann....! well, where do I begin? first of all..I got thumb cramp just scrolling all the way down this page..celebrated a birthday during that time and had my tires rotated! :)....all these wonderful comments just goes to show that when superb art is seen..emotions are stirred and words begin to flow. Your work, and this piece of fine art, clearly shows such a tremendous talent..bravo, my friend! and I wish you strength and understanding during this difficult time in your life. May the sadness and pain of your loss lead to a fullness of joy, memories and love, into your heart... fav/vote

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Tyler, Gosh thank you for writing and the support with my painting. I am doing well, he passed away ten years ago,and painting the missing memories, and the grieve of starting over. It helps you heal. :)

Lithia, FL - United States

Now, there you go, Chrisann! She lost her shirt and there's a leopard print bra. The hat remains as does the hair so it's a slow change but drastic in ways. It looks to me like the shirt being gone, instead of off the shoulder means more of an openness to new experiences and a change away from sadness. The leopard print means there's some playfulness emerging and even maybe a little interest in being a female again as not only perhaps thinking about being available but also a measure of wanting some control over your own destiny. Afterall, it's a leopard, not a cow print. :) Way to go, girl!!! FAV/Vote!

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Lil, Thank you!! You always make me smile and I enjoy reading all that you write and seeing you take the time to do this. Means so much :) with lots of smiles to you

Cedar Ridge, CA - United States

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Kerri, WOW! Thank you so much for the feature on the home page. This means so much and I thank you very much :)

Calgary, Al - Canada

Hi Chrisann...I like this very much. Hats are so interesting as are hair styles. You have incorporated both into this wonderful picture. The hues of the hair and the hat are juxta-positioned with the colorful halter top/ bright and cheery and the other two somber. Well done...who ever knows what lies ahead?...Bob

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Bob, Thank you so much for your awesome comment. I am in the process of working on the next what lies ahead painting. Thank you again :)

Acworth, GA - United States

I love this work bc a new life is thrust upon you when you lose a spouse... what lies ahead one does not know... but, it is something that you must do, one baby step at a time, forward. ;-)

Talented work… Harmonized color ... well defined objects and structured composition.~Tautvydas :)

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Tautvydas, Thank you for your input and your words and support are so much appreciated. Thank you again :)

Lithia, FL - United States

I really do hope you add to this series, Chrisann. I think you can show your evolution and it would be incredible. By the way, I got so caught up with everything else, I forgot to mention the most evident of all - the hat. It will be interesting to see IF you wear a hat as it progresses or even what kind of hat or headgear you would wear....and how your hair itself would change. I really like this idea

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Lil, I can't express enough, how much I appreciate your words. I will let you know, once the portrait is done, just about there. This time she doesnt have a hat, and she has different color hair, length. She has a flower in her hair this time. :) thank you again :)

Tehran - Iran

dear chrisann,i'm sorry for your lost and i most say what u did in this painting is just beautiful and lovely..specially the color that u choose for hair show your feeling very well..the hat looks simple and mystery at the same time..finally the pattern and colors of dress make this piece of art work perfect...wish u the best,sorousheh.

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Sorousheh, I am so Inspired, by your beautiful written words. Thank you so much, you truly made my day :)

Lithia, FL - United States

Wow, this is very interesting and I want to let you know your emotions are coming through on this. I am so sorry but it also shows new beginnings and your title is so signified by your hair going in all directions, equally. You aren't sure but you're boldly going about your life knowing he will always be with you. I also find the use of purple as interesting because it gives a contrasting feel of mourning and brave new worlds to conquer on your own terms - just around the edges but moving in that direction. You are a very mentally healthy person wo has taken what to many would be a life-stopper and channeled it into what he would have wanted for you. I really respect your's awesome and this painting IS you. How cool is that? FAV, vote

Chrisann Ellis replied:

Lil, I can't thank you enough for you taking the time to write all this. Your words, input and support mean the world to me. I am working on the next painting to add to this series and again, would like to hear what you think. Thank you so much:)

What Lies Ahead Series After The Loss Of My Husband


Chrisann Ellis


Painting - Watercolor On Paper


This was dedicated to my late husband. When he passed away in 1999, I didn't know what my life would be like. So this is titled "What Lies Ahead"~taking one day at a time, and knowing he has my back. This was painted on Heavy 300 lb cold press w/c paper, masked her the designs on her bra, used a light wash to build the depth in her hat, and then lighted starting added in the blue. Her hair just played with colors, lifted and a very small amount of salt.

This is a Series of Work... Enjoy the Gallery of What Lies Ahead
