A long time ago .  .  .  .  .

.  .  . I was inspired by what the earth has to offer us in terms of direction, motivation, inspiration and the wealth of creativity.  As a child I would wander into the woods and sit on a hilltop to innately be a part of it.  Even now as elsie kay harris contemporary landscape artist residing in Kentucky, I am still intrigued by the mountains and valleys, the hills and gorges of this Appalachian massive mountain chain.  

Over a period of time, I would immerse myself in acrylic painting in a cabin in West Virginia to discover who I was as me:

As a visual artist my intention was to push the edges, processes and limits of realism with color, configuration and composition while still being faithful to the original image. Also as a contemporary landscape fine artist, I wanted to stress the importance of our universal heritage - the earth - to the viewer - now depicted in a different yet still meaningful way: to express the vitality and beauty of the landscape.  Even now, years later, I am still amazed and inspired at the wealth of beauty the earth gives us
