PAINTINGS  

Clouds

Joni's comments from the StarArt book:
"This was an exercise in observation, a portrait done from a mirror over a period of a couple of weeks. During that time, I noticed how much a face changes according to sleep and the tension of the day or lack of tension. Sometimes my lips would be fuller and I would paint them as I saw them, then the next day the tension of the day would thin my lips out and i would look at the painting and it would seem wrong. The same thing happened with my eyelids; they would fluctuate from being very full to the crease and very thin to the crease. So over a period of two weeks it was a general representation of the thickness and thinness of my face." Bryan Keelan writes: In the background, is the Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon Sask. Joni holds a prairie lilly, the Provincial flower of Saskatchewan

I love the way she did the hair.

One of her best. She has given herself a very weary/lost look, which is odd as it was only 1969
