Painter, musician, singer, composer, lyricist – even children’s book author, Joni Mitchell is the definitive DaVinci.  Today she turns 74!  Join us in wishing her the happiest of birthdays.

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
