- 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

from Saatchi online - how to pack your art work
Okay, once you have sold a painting outside your area you have to pack it. I give my paintings as wedding gifts. My method of packing is to wrap it in paper towels and then get an unscented house hold garbage bag, place it inside and fold it around the painting. This give a little air cushion to it. Then I wrap it in wedding gift wrap. So far, Ive never had to ship them anywhere. This article from Saatchi online had a lot of great pointer to how to ship a painting. Check it out!
