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

Sold another painting: Spanish Cafe - Andalucia - Gaucin

As metioned in my previous post, a friend wanted to buy this painting, so I made the effort to find the Spanish town its from. That turned out to be Gaucin. I was debating haw to rename it, so settled on just adding the town name. The painting was turned over tonight to Rich Manno fro 200 dollars. We both attend a Bible study at Jacksonville Chapel on Thursday nights, so afterwards the transaction was made. One of my babies should have a good home. Another friend mentioned the possibility of buying one to give as a wedding present. She will be doing some shopping on my blog! Here's the painting and its new owner
