Once or twice a season on Plum Island, the ocean, air and earth conspire to create the perfect conditions and a thick mist rolls slowly in off the water cloaking the world in a dense white blanket. For a short time everything seems still and quiet. Everyday objects appear mysterious and magical in their shrouds of white. Then as silently as it comes, it disappears. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white 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.
