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

Recipes for the feeding of a starving artist - bacon wrapped, mushroom stuffed chicken

Artists need to eat! Besides being a painter, I like to cook. Our family Monday meal is chicken thighs which most every one likes dipped in milk, coated with breadcrumbs and baked. I like to do something else with them. This time I made bacon wrapped, mushroom stuffed chicken. I deboned the thigh, seasoned and pounded flat. I modified it by cooking a bacon slice the crumbled it. I sauted the mushrooms and onions in the bacon grease and added seasoned bread crumbs and the crumbled bacon. Yum! Served with perogies sauted with onions and broccoli sauted in the bacon fat
