The "Art Revealed Show" with Gayle Rappaport Weiland interviewing Patris
Way back in June of this year, Gayle asked me to be her guest on the Art Revealed show for sometime in October. I've known Gayle a long time and thought this would be a fun thing to do. I wasn't sure what my "Art Reveal" would be at that time, but thought "Oh something clever will come to mind as we get closer to the filming day." I was busy with the studio, summer travel plans, and just trying to keep up with the day to day activities at the studio.
As the filming day neared in October, Gayle called me and I shared with her that I just saw the For Sale sign pounded into the ground outside my studio. The Patris Studio and Gallery was being sold and I myself was not able to purchase it. Gayle and I brainstormed ideas, and both agreed the show had to go on.
When the camera crew showed up to begin filming that October afternoon, I hugged Gayle and said, "You are never going to believe this. I have something very exciting to reveal on the "Art Revealed" show today.

|A beautiful spot in Glacier Park to set up and paint.|
|It was unusually hot while my painting pal, Abigail Van Cannon, and I were up in Montana painting. A cool breeze blowing off the Middle Fork of the Flathead River provided the perfect air conditioning for us.|
|Lunch break and then we'll get another painting done before heading back to my dad's house. He still lives in the same house where I grew up, which is about 30 minutes from where we are here in Glacier Park.|
|While we were painting here by these raging waters, a whole group of horses and riders walked by us and over the bridge.|
|I know for certain that growing up in this breath taking beautiful scenery has influenced my art and my passion for plein air landscape painting. Another magnificent scene to behold.|
