Kenny McKenna


Artist Bio

Oklahoma artist Kenny McKenna is one of America's finest landscape artists. Painting in oil, Kenny's American landscapes are breathtaking in their majesty and beauty. His subject matter is America's land and its spirit-from the dramatic Santa Elena Canyon of the Big Bend, the Palo Duro Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, the Grand Canyon to the Arizona desert. Each piece is a very special painting that captures in a moment the timeless beauty of our great nation.
