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

More on the West Elm / Etsy Holiday Market on Dec 1st (Paramus)

This event is coming up quickly and They just sent me the event poster and the link to the Facebook page. I also found the mention of this eevnt in Boston in the Backby.patch. One wrinkle in the ointment for me is that my church scheduled a very important special meeting on that day, so my friends from 1st Baptist Hackensack won't be able to be there.
So don't know it I'll be selling anything, but it wil be a step up in my art career and I will get to meet some more fellow artists.
