Among my favorite subjects to paint are musician artists who were so distinctive in their style and character. Janis Joplin had that rare ability of delivering a song that reaches you deeply. Her gritty voice and bluesy soulfulness was one-of-a-kind. Unfortunately, due to a drug overdose, at only 27, she left us way too soon. But her music, like “Cry Baby” and so many others are our forever gift. Thank you Janis.
