This a one in a series of American roadside structures at the foot of the mountains.  I'm exploring the feeling of the place. So many people have stopped for gas and taken a snapshot or two of mountains,  but so few have taken pictures of the gas station and the mountains in context.  It's that stop for gas and a stretch that is remembered;  that's where and when our fondest road trip memories are made.

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.”
