This year I searched for an image to adapt for the poster and stumbled on a gorgeous painting by the late Kirsti Ottem Langeland. She was a Norwegian born artist who lived in France and painted in the style of Klimt.
Her vibrant painting appears to be mixed media using on a well-known photo of Joni combined with paint. I used Kirsti’s painting as the background and added Joni’s iconic, flowing signature and text in Adobe Caslon Pro font.
The concert is a fundraiser for Ithaca’s Community School of Music and Arts. I’m also going to be performing — I plan to play ‘Hejira’ and ‘For The Roses,’ title tracks from my top 2 favorite Joni albums.
Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading all the way to here.
