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

New Milford Juried show date mixup , Maywood and Card Samples

I have a tendancy to get my dates/times on certain events wrong. Happens too often and it happened with the New Milford juried show. I thought I was supposed to turn my painting in this past Saturday when it was actually the previous Monday - Jan 31st. A bit bummed but nothing I can do about it. Just have to do better on keeping dates strait.

I've heard nothing from the Maywood Library about my little 8 painting show so I will call tomorrow.

I just got samples of cards produced by FineArtAmerica with my paintings on them. They cover the entire front and are a glossy print. Check them out
