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 two packets of cards on Fine Art America

There are many on-line venues that I as an artist can use to sell my paintings and items based on my paintings. You can set the percentage of royalty that you get, but the more you want, the higher the price. Since I'm just starting out, Ive set it at 15 %. They do all the producing and sending. I've sold items: mugs, magnets, bags, etc on Zazzle but never on Fineartamerica which is cards & prints until now!
I've just sold 2 10 card packet of my West Chop Lighthouse - Martha's Vineyard

and Nantucket Lighthouse - A View From The Ferry III

Hopefully, people who receive these cards will want to buy more fro themselves!! From a little seed....
