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

My painting is cover photo on The Artistic Blog FB page

The The Artistic Blog Facebook page is using paintings of people who are regular visitors to their page as their cover photo for a week. They asked all who wanted to appear to email several paintings we would want seen and they'd pick one. I got an email telling me my Hilton Head Sunrise painting (which I painted from a photo by a friend Tammy Ingis)  was their cover page for the week (I'd post that, but I seem to have deleted it :-( ). It went up Sunday and should be there the rest of the week (most likely 10/10/14)
Here's the painting

and here's the caption that went along with it
