My name is Kay Sparks! After living all over America, I returned to my native state. I now live in Stuttgart, in East Arkansas, USA, on the Grand Prairie. We are the Rice and Duck Capital Of The World! We love our ducks here!! My avatar is actually my pet duck Doofus' wing!....I've been an artist and photographer all my life, even back when the old Swinger cameras were around!! I'm relatively new to digital, and love it. I wish this medium had been around then! There's nothing like switching artistic gears in mid-life!....I love nature and ALL Gods Creatures, and enjoy painting and photographing them realistically, as He intended them to be. I'm especially fond of horses, and have owned several, (or have they owned ME?) I also love Old Things, Barns, Cars, Houses, and Everything Else that makes you smile! I'm Irish and English, with a little Cherokee Indian thrown in!!.... I'm disabled and retired but not TIRED! LONG LIVE ART!!
