Painter, musician, singer, composer, lyricist – even children’s book author, Joni Mitchell is the definitive DaVinci.  As much as she is heralded for her musical talents, she sees herself differently:

“I’m a painter first, and a musician second…”  September 8, 1998

“I have always thought of myself as a painter derailed by circumstance.”  June 2000
