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

Artists Wanted site's Times Square art show - Please "collect" me!

There are many artist sites out there vying for attention, and ArtistWanted.org site is doing so by offering a Times Square art show and getting artist's friends to go to the site and "collect" or vote for them. I need 77 people to collect me so I can get a premium membership with all sorts perks. This is a great, sneaky way of getting traffic to thr site, but isnt that what we are all trying to do? They let you load 9 photos of your art. Heres on of the paintings I added -
And heres the website to got to. Please "collect" me! http://jackmckenzie.artistswanted.org/atts2012
