This is the view out the plate glass windows of a mid-century modern home across the lawn to the studio. The windows let in so much light that there's no need for any lamps. The ceiling only seems low because the room is so large and furnished in a modern, minimalist style; uncluttered and comfortable. The architect incorporated the Golden Mean (sometimes called the Golden Ratio - 1:1.618) into the design of the entire property.  
It's a quiet, relaxed place, a place for contemplation where the noise of the world can recede into the background where it belongs.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.

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 Sept. 11, 2001, 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.”
