The world is in the usual state of uncertainty and impending disaster, but here we are in the eye of the storm where everything is still and quiet.  The sun is just behind the mountains and even the waters are smooth and calm.  Is it modern times or the reality of the constant now?  One can choose to live in the hysteria of the world or tranquility, or the million shades in between.  I choose tranquility when I'm gifted with a few moments of it; the other is always there.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work 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.”
