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

Jason Horejs and his Red Dot Blog - How Galleries Select Artists

I highly recommend that you follow Jason Horejs of the Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale Arizona, if you have not already. I've just became aware of him, despite the fact that his writings have been around awhile. If you have not, check out his FB page or his Red Dot Blog. Both full of great articles on artist/gallery relationships.
His current posting in an on-going series about How Galleries Work concerns How Galleries Select Artists. It does vary from gallery to gallery and there are exceptions, but there are some base ideas we should all know. Check it out
