After going all around and through every floor of the place, the best thing about it was the red plastic chairs in the courtyard. It was a hot day and the chairs were right out in the sun. That's probably why no one was sitting in them. I was thinking of moving them into the shade, but that would have been tampering with the natural order of things. 

This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It 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.”
