The 19th Century sea trade brought us beautiful textiles and pottery from China. A visit to the Peabody Essex Museum inspired the use of color and design in this painting.

This painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Pat

Pat Forbes is an abstract painter whose aesthetic is heavily influenced by her 20 years as a collector and dealer of Middle Eastern textiles. Pat, who lives on the Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts, uses a neutral palette to present her interpretation of the world around her– from marshes and mountains to stones and spiderwebs. She is drawn to pattern and design, both of which influence the use of balanced repetition in her work. Pat’s muted colors invite pensive meditation, while her deliberate use of line guides the eye through satisfyingly symmetrical compositions.
