I have been experimenting with monochromatic paintings in the grey tone. Things happen in life that often don't become clear until much later. This painting reminded me that many things are hidden from view and only appear with time and attention. 

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas 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.
