"I have been blessed with a passion to create."

   Jim Wodark has expressed his creativity in many different forms over the years culminating in his passion for painting the landscape in oil. In the past he explored both watercolor and acrylic, and spent many years working as a cartoonist before making the commitment to being a full-time artist. Since making that commitment he has won multiple awards in both plein air competitions and juried exhibitions.

   Wodark grew up in a family in tune with and supportive of the arts. He gives credit to his mother for her encouragement of his work growing up. She had received her college degree in fine arts. Although Wodark continued taking art classes through college, he opted to pursue marketing as his degree. His creativity couldn't be contained, though, and showed up in the cartooning and design work he did for fifteen years. He wrote to us about how that informed his current work, his inspirations and about living and painting in California.

The Artist's Road Store
Max the Easel Butler

Max the Easel Butler

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.
