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: Bailey Island Fisherman's Shed

I love prowling the coast looking for great scenes to paint. Maine has all this little bridge connected islands that are full of small coves with fishing villages and overworked fishing docks. I came across this scene in Mackerel Cove on Bailey Isalnd. Fell in love with the image right away. The one corner of the shed hangs out over the edge of the rock, which makes ita ll the more interesting. So enjoy the view and buy some notecard, postcards, mugs and prints of this image on Zazzle and FineartAmerica
