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

2 Posters now available on Zazzle and current paintings

I've made 2 posters via Zazzle - 1) Fishing Boats-Tarifa Spain 2) Spanish Cafe - Andulucia.For the posters I decide on, hopefully, more interesting title They are pretty simple, but I'm testing the waters here. I'm going to go to other sites and see if I can make something better. I will be adding more cards, postcards etc.

I'm still working on my three painting mentioned in previous posts. Haven't spent as much time as I want, but they will get down. I have a few more I need to do and at least 4 weddings in the next year or so to paint for. Gotta get moving
