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

One of my photos (not paintings) won a postcard contest

Yep, one of my photographs, not one of my paintings, was one of the winners in a postcard contest for the 2012 season of Camp-of-the-Woods, a Christian Family camp in New York's Adirondacks. My family has been going there for 3 generations and I frequently participate in thier Spring and Fall work weekends. They have a girls camp out in the middle of the lake called Tapawingo and the chosen picture is taken from the boat approaching the dock. I get nothing except "the honor of the thing" Here's my photo
For the rest of the pictures (all truly beautiful) check this link: https://www.facebook.com/#!/media/set/?set=a.10150669396998074.394089.128308128073&type=1
