Throwback Thursday - Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Airstream Demonstration Painting - Alumapalooza 2017

For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a great memory of an afternoon spent at the Airstream factory for Alumapalooza 2017, when Patrick Saunders Fine Arts did a free demonstration painting of a vintage Airstream trailer as part of his Laguna Plein Air Painters Association membership.

It was our first time at the factory in Jackson Center, Ohio, and it was great to meet so many fellow Airstreamers, and to see where all the riveted aluminum magic happens. 

This video shows Patrick starting a painting of a gorgeous 1965 Safari Land Yacht that is the Kabine, a wonderful mobile "Tiny Shiny Shop" stationery store. We quickly fell in love with Americone Dream, the Kabine shop dog and greeter, and Patrick ended up gifting the unfinished demo to the Kabine’s lovely owner, Kim Hayes. (You can catch this dynamic duo in the background of the video.) Meri is truly the perfect dog, and we still covet her via her Instagram account, @twogirlsandatrailer.

The Kabine is so much more than a stationery store. It’s the perfect place to find a unique, truly special gift for someone you really care about, and you will be supporting a small business during this difficult time that is near and dear to many, many hearts. You can learn more about Kim and Meri and the Kabine at

We look forward to the day when our paths cross again with Kim & Meri, and all of the other wonderful Airstreamers we’ve met on the road during our plein air streaming journey.
