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 Art Show for Sept/Oct - The Park Ridge Public Library in New Jersey

After an August break, I have a new public Library show in The Park Ridge Library in New Jersey. the address is 51 Park Ave, Park Ridge New Jersey.
Its in the same building as the Boro Hall and entrance is in the back. The majority of the paintings are in the common hallway that the two facilities share & is outside the library. Good for when the boro hall is open and the library closed. There is also what's called the Mystery Room where there are 5 paintings now, but as I produce more (got three in the works now) I will put them in there. They will be doing some pretty good publicity for me, so I'm happy abou that.All the links below will be in the art show banner items on top of this blog. Come and enjoy and maybe but a painting or something from my merchandising area.

Heres the libray website.

and a picture of the outside

Here's a Flickr slide show of what it looks like
