This piece is part of Pat's new "Moon" series. The paintings explore the wonder of the moon in its ever changing aspects. "The moon always shows us its same side," explains Pat. "Because it orbits the earth, the moon has phases, causing the portion we see illuminated to change. The moon, waxing and waning, is full every 29.5 days. I love to see a 'thumbnail' moon, looking so quiet and shy."

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.
