I find this painting of Jim Warrens breathtaking. After the Storm is not just an ordinary beautiful picture – you can see that Jim has put an interesting twist to it. I was impressed with his brilliant work. This picture is like having a mystery, a story that is unknown and a secret to unravel. In my own perspective, it appears that the horses have entered into a new dimension and that they have come from a different world. This is just coming from my imagination. After all, a picture paints a thousand words.
About After the Storm
After the Storm is a limited edition print. I admire Jim because he didn’t simply paint a mountain scene as it was, he considered adding a twist – such as the roaring, thundering snow of an avalanche becoming a herd of roaring thundering horses. For me, his work is stimulating, engaging and enthralling.
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 90′s ushered in a new emphasis on the environment and saving earth, so 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 his work and create new worlds on canvas. When not in his studio, Jim enjoys time with his wonderful 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 a little brighter. Jim is mostly self-taught and prides himself on his famous advice to aspiring artists, “To hell with the rules…paint what you like.”
