When I saw this painting of Jims, I couldn’t help but wonder if he loves cats. I recall the time when I had a pet cat during my childhood years. I suddenly missed that pet and our fun memories together when I gazed at this picture. I find it a clever idea to paint clouds with the form of a cat. Adding details to the clouds like the eyes, ears, nose and mouth has resulted in a wonderful work of art.

About The Artist
Jim Warren was born in 1949 in Long Beach, California to Don and Betty Warren. Using only traditional oil paint on stretched canvas, Jim started his early career through the 70s as a fine artist, winning first place awards at large outdoor art shows in California.
During the 80′s Jim pursued his high school dream of painting album cover art and painted hundreds of magazine illustrations, movie posters, book covers and especially album covers for such stars as Alice Cooper, Prince and Bob Seger, the latter winning A Grammy Award for best album package for the cover of Seger’s “Against the Wind” album which reached #1 on the Billboard 200. The 90′s ushered in a new environmental focus. Jim painted “Earth…Love it or Lose it” which received critical acclaim and was featured on numerous magazines, billboards and shirts. It also became a popular visual representation for the global environmental movement. In the mid 90′s Jim began painting famous actors and incorporating celebrities and friends into his work referring to the works as “personalized paintings”. In 2004, Jim’s collaborations with Disney were released as fine art prints. Jim continues to paint Disney characters and his own unique interpretations of Disney characters to this day. In 2009 Jim began painting celebrities for the Fame-Wall project in New York and Hollywood.
In present day Jim continues to expand on his work and create new worlds on canvas. When not in his studio Jim enjoys time with his family. Jim considers his greatest accomplishment to date to be the many letters and communications he has received from around the world from his fans sharing how his work has inspired them and made their days better. Jim is mostly self-taught and prides himself on his famous advice to aspiring artists, “To hell with the rules…paint what you like.”
