- 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

First Baptist Summer Art Gallery (SAG) sign
If your gonna have something like the SAG, you have to have an eye catching sign/logo to go with it. It had been a laminated black and whie sign that was 8 inches wide and stretched across the top of the approximately 15 long board where the art would hang. I came up with something that I hope will do the be a little more attractive It will sit in the middle of the board with the exhibits surrounding it. I put images of as many kind of media as I could, without it looking too crowded. I you paint, thake photos, crochet, sew, whatever you do that that I can hang or pictures of the items it too delcate, than you are wecome to join.There will also be a smaller sign which says "Your Art Here", which I hope will encourage more people to sign up.
I think it will do!
