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

Interesting Article - from Wordpress - How to get more traffic and end of Old Tappan Library show

First the end of the Old Tappan show. Nothing came of it terms of sales, but the Libray's yoga class meets in the communnity room where most of the paintings were. The Saturday librarian participated and said it lent a nice peaceful atmosphere for the yoga class. At least some good came from it! And since I don't have a library for August, I suggest you go and check out my friend Denise's photography and Kermit the Frog collection at the Hillsdale library!

I know, I know, Wordpress is a rival blog hosting site than the one I use, but they do have good articles. Here's a good one about how to get more traffic on your blog. Check it out.
