Joni as a painter

Think of Joni Mitchell and think primarily of her incredible career as a singer, songwriter, musical innovator and trailblazer. Much less has been written of her life as a painter. We've been collecting images for years and have organized 312 pieces of Joni's artwork here for all to enjoy. The images displayed here are purposely low resolution for copyright reasons.
