The drive across the desert was long, boring, hot and dusty. We were looking for a motel with a pool where we could take a swim and work the kinks out after sitting for so long. This was perfect. Right at the edge of the desert, nice and cold! We stayed out at the pool until the stars came out. There were millions of them.

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.”
