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 - Zooks Mill Bridge - Lancaster and new picture of old painting

First of all, the new painting. This is the Zooks Mill Bridge- Lancaster, one of 29 bridges in Lancaster County Pa. It has a barn near it, so its a little more interesting to me.

For the two library shows I'm doing in May (Franklin Lakes and New Milford) I decided to borrow 4 of the paintings I've given to people as wedding gifts. I've got good picture of all except the BrandtPoint Lighthouse - Nantucket painting I gave to a friend, so here it is

I will be posting the picture lineup of each show when they go up.
