Ritschel moved to California sometime after 1909. He exhibited at the S.F. Art Institute in 1911, at the P.P.I.E., 1915 where he won a gold medal, and at the California State Fair in 1916. In 1918 he and his wife moved into the unique, castle-like, stone studio-home he had built high on a bluff overlooking the ocean in Carmel Highlands.
