Mitchell painted this piece en plein air on an overcast early spring day on Sauvie Island. "Great to get out of the studio for a change," he says. "The scene lent itself to a fast impressionistic treatment, as I had to paint quickly before the rain started up again."
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. On the drive home after being laid off the day of the September 11 terrorist attacks, he realized life is short and decided to devote himself full-time to painting. His work focuses on architecture and cityscapes, and portrays everyday places that become lost to our curiosity through sheer familiarity.

I really love the artwork I bought, "In The Small Hours #3." The colors are vibrant. It's just beautiful. Thanks Mitch!- K Moon
This is a fun and interesting piece of art. I like what he does. I like the colors. It is bright but not annoyingly so. He does nice clean work and his finish is neatly done. His photos of his art on UGallery are the real thing. No camera or lighting alterations. Good Job Mr. Freifeld!- S Day
