"I only hope to keep painting,
and hopefully never settle into a comfort zone,
so that I keep pushing myself for a greater understanding, full of surprise, wonder at nature and beauty, and doing the best work I can."
Jim McVicker recently (March 2014) won the Southwest Art Award of Excellence AND The Franz Bischoff Award for Best Still Life at the California Art Club 103rd Gold Medal Juried Exhibition. He has shown nationally and throughout California. His work has been featured in Art & Antiques, Art of California, American Artist magazine, in the book, The Artist and the American Landscape and in the documentary, Jim McVicker- A Way of Seeing, created by Peter Granrud and John Crater (see below).

The Artist's Road Store
Max the Easel Butler is an ultra-light tool that fits most easels, and creates a great platform for your palette. Replaces bulky, rigid shelves and attachments. Mounts in seconds. It can even mount on the side two legs rather than the front to allow more room to be closer to your painting. We like it so much we keep one in every painting kit! Also in our Store: Check out the tools and other products that we use in our own art and travels. We only offer things for sale in our Store that we enthusiastically believe in.
