About Me

My photo
Paramus, New Jersey, United States
No, this in not a blog about gardening in any way, but a journal of my journey to become a professional landscape painting artist. For years, I’ve given my paintings as wedding gifts without thinking of profiting in some way from it. I worked for 18 years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC as a computer programmer. I have been a painter since 1990, coincidentally, when I started working at the Met. I watched Bob Ross do his thing on Channel 13 in New York and decided I could do this, too. I have no formal training. I incorporate Bob's wet-on-wet technique for sky and water. My subject matter is covered bridges, lighthouses, fishing village scenes, barns, etc. Maine, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Nova Scotia and Spain are some of the places I have painted. My style is detailed and sometimes people think a photo of the painting is an actual photo of the scene. I hope to continue and grow in this medium. I also like to cook & dance. I am also a committed Christian. I am taking commissions - painting your landscapes style photos or your vacation home. Prices on request. contact me - Jackmck@juno.com my website is www.artofjackmckenzie.com

Got a landscape or house photo you want painted? - contact me!

A couple of services as a painter I would like to provide.

1) Doing paintings of your favorite landscape type photos. I did one of of those a while ago, but that was when I did not think of making this a business. We can discuss the price of this, but I would charge 100 dollars per photo, negotiable of course. Generally it takes me a 3-4 weeks to do a painting, doing 3 or 4 at a time. Email me at Jackmck@juno.com.

2) Doing a painting of your house. I've heard of this being done and a friend asked me about doing a painting her house. I told her to take a number of photos of her house and get back to me. Prices negotiable.
