This piece is the first in Pat's new "Moon" series. The paintings explore the wonder of the moon in its ever changing aspects. "We humans have expressed this wonder in art and poetry for millennia," says Pat. "From my studio windows, I see the moon rise over the Atlantic and swim through the ocean of the sky. It overwhelms me with its splendor."

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.
