Joan Mitchell





They said she was a pain in the ass.





They said she drank too much.





She had husbands and lovers.




She painted with her fingers.
She painted with her fingers.
She painted. For forty years.
Through thick and thin.
Thick and thin.
She painted.

  1. I am here from ZenDotStudio and so excited to see imagery by Joan Mitchell. She created an interesting life and fabulous work! I remember one of her last visits to San Francisco MOMA where she had a show...so wonderful to see rooms of her art! Thank you
