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

The "Our Town" "article" about my Maywood Library exhibit

When I asked about showing my paintings in the Maywood Library, one of the things that happened was the library's publicist did an interview 1) for a profile to be put up with the paintings and 2) that the exhibit would be in the local newspaper "Our Town". The paper came out today and I have a total of one sentence, a half a sentence actually at the bottom of the Maywood Library column on the 2nd page. The thing is I DO get mentioned!!!! Its a start!!!! Now just need the good people of Maywood to find it!

My friend Susan's article about Denise and i should be out soon and I hope its more than a sentence.
Here's the mention. It on the left hand side just above "Computer Classes":
