Abstracts in Acrylic & Ink by Jodi Ohl

My wonderful friend Jodi Ohl wrote this inspiring book Abstracts in Acrylic & Ink and it is stuffed with loads of great techniques, tricks and inspiration. In Jodi’s own words it “is a book about learning how to unfold, learn, grow, expand, experiment and experience a dialogue with art.”

The artwork and step outs are beautifully photographed and definitely make you wanna go into your studio and play yourself.

I am super stoked that Jodi also asked me to contribute some of my paintings to her book as they represent some of the concepts she covers in her book.

Get yourself a copy or leave a comment on the bottom of this post for a chance to win one of the copies of the book I received. You can comment until January 28, 2017 midnight EST and I will pick one lucky winner randomly and announce the winner shortly after.

    I love Jodi’s concept of experiencing a dialogue with art! I think it’s a good way to approach an art journal page – rather than trying to complete a perfect piece of art from the outset, I’ll just say to myself “now I am going to have a dialogue with art” and see what happens!

    I will be standing in So Cal, facing north and waving at you while you are in San Jose. :) So close, and yet too far to make it to a midweek class. Have fun!!

    Nathalie, I would love to win a copy of this book. I’m 65 and madly trying to catch up for the lost years when I didn’t realize I could make art! I read voraciously and see hints of the influences helping to grow my work 😃

    I love Jodi Ohl. I took notice of her years ago and then lost sight of her. So glad I found her again.
