What is Patreon?
Patreon is a direct connection between artists and patrons. Through this page you become a "Patron-of-the-Arts" - you sponsor us in exchange for art we create corresponding to levels of support established before hand. See our rewards to the right.  

 We are Stock and Rachel Schlueter, a married couple, finding our way to the dream life through painting and travel. Ever since Stock and I met we agreed, the most awesome thing would be to hitch up a little trailer and take our painting gig on the road. Painting on location is known as plein air painting, it's a thing... and very popular right now. For years we talked/fantasized.  iThen! suddenly destiny began to emerge through a series of strangely correlating events, and the money came too, thanks to Patreon and the cool article my famous author friend Amy Stewart wrote for the local paper, on how we were embarking on this creative adventure which included a big Everything Must Go (studio) sale. We had a good send off -sold a lot of art!

With hearts open, money in our pockets and faith in the universe we hit the road on June 5th 2016 Now one year later, we can say we did it and our journey far surpassed our expectations! Only with the help from friends could we have done what we did. We painted up a storm. Life and painting had reached a new level of astonishment. We created over 450 plein air paintings during our passage, they're really cool too, look for yourself

When we got home after 11 glorious months of wanderlust we began work on our art exhibit. First we got a an interview with journalist Heather Sheldon, which was published in the local newspaper: Link She did a beautiful job. Then paintings were hung in chronological order in our  90' long hall gallery in Eureka Ca,. accompanied by a map of the our travels from beginning to end.

We were fortunate to have my son, photographer Tyson Ritter, join us for two months of the trip! He made an amazing video with drone footage! We showed the film he created on the studio wall during our reception.

The show was big and lots of friends came. Many friends and red dots made for a very memorable evening.

The End. But not really, now we are bonified travelers and plein air painters and look forward every chance we get to being back in travel mode! 

Many thanks to everyone who made it possible!

When we reach 1000 per month we can start to save to buy a new travel trailer! We love our 12' 1955 Shasta with beautiful wood interior but, an upgrade on size and efficiency would be very nice. And of course plan another extensive painting trip!
