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

Nova Scotia Art News posts my Peggys Cove Painting

This comes under the heading of its nice to have your art work noticed!
This morning, I check my Twitter feed and this is the first thing I see

Interesting! I  click on the link and there's my blog post about my Peggy's Cove on this on-line "newspaper" put out by Photographer Shawna Mac (also noticed grammatical error or two in my post). She has used the Paper.li site to create a series of art "newspapers" for Newfoundland Ontario Paris  and London plus a Digital Arts newspaper. I am now following her on her Shawnamac_ twitter page and suggest you do too and maybe check out this Paper.li site, too.
