Second take on the same motel (see sold works). I liked this place in the evening after everyone had left the pool area. They've all gone out to dinner at the million restaurants in Palm Springs. This place is unique in its oddly shaped swimming pool and two story cabana. The huge Chowchilla Mountains are always looming over the valley, and once the sun sinks behind them, night in the desert descends rather quickly. I liked the lights dancing on the water and all the shades of blue.

Getting to Know Mitchell

Mitchell Freifeld cannot remember a time when he did not draw and paint. He won his first juried show at age 10 and decided that someday, he’d be a “real painter.” He settled in the San Francisco Bay Area in the early ’70s and got involved in the burgeoning tech industry. From there, he moved to Portland upon accepting an information technology position. After being laid off the day of the September 11 terrorist attacks, he devoted himself full-time to painting and has been living his dream ever since. His work focuses on architecture and cityscapes, and portrays everyday places that “become lost to our curiosity through sheer familiarity.”
