This is another view or architect William Cody's great gas station. Cody designed many buildings in Palm Springs that came to epitomize modern architecture, what we now call "mid-century modern."  One of them is a wonderful gas station on the road leading into the area.  I love this place and have always bought gas here when I'm in the desert. Maybe Frank Sinatra liked this place also. 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.”
