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

How one person started a greeting card line, recent work and a snow fish

Ya never know! Gotta pound the pavement!


I'm just about finished with the Row Boats - Menemsha Pond painting. Just a few details. The start on another barn pic. Gotta build that portfolio up!

I was in Suffern NY the other day and saw this snow fish at a house next to a church where I go to a networking group. Its been there a couple of weeks, but I did not have my camera. Thankfully it lasted a while. It had been dyed yellow (by what, I did not ask)
