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

Library Show for November - Paramus Libray

Well as I said before, back to the beginning. My first library show was at Paramus Library and here we go again.
This was delayed for almost a week because of power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy, but my Paramus Library show will be up and running by this afternoon. Here's the library's website Paramus Library to check for operating hour. Come and check it out and, if you see anything you like, buy one for 200 dollars. If thats too much, check back here to my merchandising section and buy a mug, bag,  postcards or prints. Hope you enjoy it. Check out the pictures.
