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 321 pieces of Joni's artwork here for all to enjoy. The images displayed here are purposely low resolution for copyright reasons. The artwork section is managed by Jamie Zubairi.
