"Street Scene 1 brings to mind Paris in the spring with its avenues of trees," says artist Pat Forbes. When asked about her process, Pat explains, "I began Street Scene 1 and 2 thinking mostly about shapes in the abstract. I seem to naturally create a horizon line. It appears in spite of my intent. The shapes are made without an initial plan, then I build on them to develop balance and harmony. Marks, scratches, drips, color, and pencil lines help create texture and movement." She further adds, "In this case, my abstract wandering gradually took on meaning and the shapes became buildings, and the painting became a street scene. The marks became windows, doorways, and alleys."

Pat Forbes

naples, Florida

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 west coast of Florida, 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.

I love Snow Moon which I have placed prominently in my dining room. The textures are amazing and give the room a dramatic feel offsetting dark colored walls with the eerie white colors in the painting. Thank you Pat!
