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

An artist has got to eat! - Spinach Salad Flambe????

A friend on FB, Hannah, is working at a Christian kids camp outside of Bozeman Montana and also has ablog. She posted that she had gone to a flambe cooking class at a rather sophisticated sounding food shop in town - http://www.olivelle.com/cooking-classes/. When I checked the site it listed spinach salad flambe as one of the things being taught. New to me. The store's site did not have it (but lots of other great recipes, check it out!) Found some recipes on-line, but few reviews. So for you daring souls out there, here is one recipe I found. A flaming salad dressing. Hot!
