Happy Birthday Jim!

November 18, 2009

Jim’s favorite Birthday cake…white cake with fresh strawberries inside!

The priceless expression of complete satisfaction…white cake and strawberries just does it for Jim!

We had a wonderful show last Saturday here at Jim Warren’s West Coast studio in Portland, Oregon. Thank you to the many who attended and contributed your voice to singing the Happy Birthday song to Jim!

One of the highlights of the day was a special presentation by Portland artist, John Trimble. Jim has been an inspiration to this artist for years so John was thrilled that he would finally be able to meet Jim and thank him personally. But what wasn’t anticipated was what transpired when John arrived at the studio with a gift–wrapped “package”.

After  a group singing of Happy Birthday to Jim , John stood up and opened an envelope attached to the package. The enclosed card, which John had created just for Jim, was inscribed with the following words written by John: “Sometimes the most beautiful things come from seeing all of life’s imperfections, yet knowing we’re not alone in the search for something more meaningful in this wondrous place we live in.” then “You have been a huge inspiration to me as an artist. Your art has taught me that thinking outside the box and painting what we like, is just fine. Keep painting and inspiring Jim”. As you can imagine, Jim was extremely touched by John’s words.

John unwrapped the package and presented Jim with a beautiful painting he had created for and dedicated to Jim entitled Blessed Inspiration. You can see some great photos here. It was truly a magical moment. Jim is going to keep Blessed Inspiration hanging in his Portland studio so others can visit and view it. If you’d like to stop by the studio, just give us a call to arrange it.

And here we are with Thanksgiving week just ahead of us and Christmas and Hanukah a few short weeks from there. It’s almost hard to believe another year has almost passed. With that in mind, we, here at Jim Warren Studios, would like to help make your Holiday season as wonderful and stress-free as possible. We have many prints already in stock which can be framed and shipped to you or your loved ones in time for the Holidays. Give us a call or email. 800-975-9927 or And don’t forget to look at all of Jim’s work at There’s the Fine Art catalog which shows all the giclees available, the What’s New section and the Originals for Sale section too! Lots to look at.

    Happy Birthday Jim,

    Irronically you share a birthday with my little friend (I just sent you an email regarding her). Morgan is 9 years old and just lost her 38 year old mother to cervical cancer. I was searching for a birthday present for her and saw your art “Above the Clouds.” I can’t believe how perfectly it illustrates Morgan’s image of where her mother is right now, up in the clouds with horses (they shared a close bond through their love of horses). I can’t afford the large mural but can’t find it in any other format such as a poster. Do you have any suggestions for me?

    Thank you so much.
