Artwork

This painting is part of Mitchell Freifeld's ongoing series of midcentury motels and gas stations dotting America's backroads. "I always turn off the Interstate to see the Business Loop," says Mitchell. "So I came upon a real survivor from a lost time, another Thunderbird Motel! Its almost brutalist modernism makes a classic. Wonder what they were thinking about back in '56 or '57 when it was built. I wonder if there are more Thunderbirds out there. Probably, it's a perfect modern name and idea."

Mitchell Freifeld

Portland, Oregon

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 like the Thunderbird Motel. It reminds me of David Hockney's pool. Nicely done!

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!
