Mitch paints the human form in all walks of life, whether it is a mother and child on a street in Spain, or a lotus gardener in China. He also paints still life, landscapes, cityscapes, and old buildings- from the crumbling structures of Venice, to the Grand castles of Britain, or the adobe structures of the American Southwest. To Mitch, the adobe buildings “have a life of their own” and painting them is “like painting skin.” Mitch’s fascination with people and historic subjects stems from has appreciation for the efforts of all cultures to pass on their uniqueness and history to new generations and to other cultures.
