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

Artist Spotlight - Sally Lancaster - Horse Paintings and My line of Mugs on Zazzle

Sally Lancaster is an incredible painter of horses in the UK. If you are a horse lover, you'll love these. Check out her site -


In a continuing effort to make a penny or two off my paintings, I've created a line of mugs with images of my paintings on them on the Zazzle site. I tried to get a picture of them, but can't copy anything off it, so check the site below. I would also invite you to check out my other selling sites (Fineartamerica and printfection to name two) listed on the right side of the blog. Hope you buy a mug or two and maybe a print!
