Cold and raining in the middle of winter, in the middle of the night. Perfect time and mood for a long walk and a break from the easel. What a welcome sight! The restaurant is still open. But one of the main things about this place is their late hours. Perfect place to stop in for a drink and warm up. Perfect night for some cool 50s West Coast jazz ,which is another main thing about this place. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It 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.”
