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

art parodies - Breakfast Surreal and more

I love parodies! I grew up reading MAD Magazine, which contained its fair share of art mashups. Pinterest is full of them. There's a Muppet version of The Scream I pinned that is one of my most re-pinned items. So this will be another in an ongoing series of posts. Enjoy or hang your head is dis-believing exasperation

"Nightmare at Café Terrace" by US-based illustrator Hillary White
This is my most re-posted pin on Pinterest
Minions are everywhere
as is The Scream
Magritte/Mary Poppins Mashup
I end with this one a - A Tree paints a happy Bob Ross
