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

A mother and daughter union. 4 year old completes mom's drawings

Found this on the The-Art-School-at-Old-Church in Demarest, NJ FB page.
A collaboration (and a fun clash) of styles here.
The artist, Mica Angela Hendricks, was serious about her art and didn’t want her four-year-old daughter Myla near her new sketchbook cause she knew little Myla would want to scribble all over the pages. Then, her daughter said the words that changed everything:
“If you can’t share, we’ll have to take it away.” Which was the phrase mom used when the kids would not share and Myla used her own mother’s words against her. Nnow Mica had no choice but to indulge Myla. She let her daughter finish one of her sketches, and pretty soon, they had a whole collection of collaborations
