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

Setting up MugsbyJack store on Zazzle - mugs with images of my paintings on them!

One of the aspects of trying to be a professional artist is selling your paintings and items base on your paintings. Thats why Finearamerica, Zazzle, Printfection, etc were set up, to assist the artist in going on-line. Zazzle gives you the ability to set up stores based on whatever criteria you want. Here is my MugsbyJack store. It contains mugs with the images of my paintings on them. So check them out and maybe buy a couple. This will be going on my merchandising area also
