This piece is part of Pat's new "Moon" series, representing November's Frost Moon. The paintings explore the wonder of the moon in its ever changing aspects. "Each full moon of the year has its own name," explains Pat. "Back in colonial times, this was the month to set traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Fall and winter moons seem bigger and brighter to me, when the nights are cold and the air is crisp."
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.
