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

Interesting videos - The Silent Monk Hallelujah Chorus

Every once in a while, I take post something not directly related to my paintings,such as my recipe posts. This is a new category - Interesting videos - ones that catch my eye and think my slender audience might be interested in. I can assure you no cat videos.
This one is one of my favorite Christmas videos - Silent Monk Hallelujah Chorus. Cant explain, just watch. The monk's processional in is a bit long, but if you stick it out, you'll be glad you did.
Here's a still from the video
