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

Neighorhood in Califorina Links their Christmas lightshows

This time of year we get the ever escalating Christmas light decorations and shows. People go nuts decorating their homes with sometimes hundreds of thousands of lights and, with the advent (pun intended) of more powerful electronics, can find more and more creative ways to synch them to music. It can be fun for visitors passing thru and get your display on the news or social media, but might be a tad annoying for neighbors. One neighborhood in California overcame that problem and got really creative by synching the entire neighborhood to music. With a drone hovering above, we get to see the entire thing.  Once a year, right? Here it is as reported in the Huffington Post
