Art One-on-One: The Beauty of Summer


Pat Forbes, Poppies 

The first day of summer is June 21st and we’re gearing up for the official start of the season with bright colors, flowers and sunshine in art. 

This week, Poppies by Massachusetts-based artist Pat Forbes caught our attention. It’s bright, bold colors definitely remind us of sunny, warm days lounging outside amongst freshly-bloomed flowers. We love the abstract twist that Pat gives these beautiful poppies. On a closer look, you can pick out different blues, greens and orange in the colorful background. 

Pat shares the inspiration behind her piece:  

From May til July my garden is afire with a mass of glorious red corn poppies. This is the first painting (the mother) in a series I did in celebration of one of summer’s splendors.
