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 Painting and new library show - Hohokus

Well, I finally finished The Goat Island painting painting with the Pennsylvania Barn painting not far behind.

Today is the 31st and the end of the Maywood Library show. I gathered the paintings and the head librarian said it got a lot of good comments. but no sale interest. I kept the bio plaque that they made.
Tomorrow I set up at Maywood. I'm going to do a different mix, but have not decided what yet.
Heres the site with the Library info - http://www.bccls.org/members/hoho.shtml . There's no parking lot

I will be in Franklin Lakes in May. I get to do an opening reception there. I will get an idea of what that is like when I go to Denise Frawley's reception for her Photo display on April 9th. Go check her show out!
