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

New Painting: Nantucket Main Street Snowfall

Have I said before that I love Nantucket? I agree with Holly Finigan of NantucketBlACKbook (one of the Gray Lady's premier bloggers) that it is my happy place. It is one of my favorite subjects, usually summer or sunrise/sunset scenes. Then the Townpool Nantucket Store Posted an after snowfall photo on their FB page and I had to paint it. Its all the basic Nantucket white or gray houses but on the right hand side was a red brick building and I had to paint it.  Check out their page with lots of drone based sunset shots and some interesting merchandise
And as usual, you can get mugs from Zazzle of this image
