My recent paintings have been involving removing any intentional mark making on my part other than flat areas of color painted on a background and the use of the this chain-linked fence thing I picked up at Home Depot a few months ago.  I have no explanation as to why I am doing this other than that it is fun and has become sort of an obsession.  What I’m trying to pull off is just the right combination of color, urgency, and pattern.  The more I work on these the more I discover I can nuance slight details to create interesting effects often with layering colors and the use of blue painter’s tape to mask off areas.  Perhaps it is all in an effort to create something new and fresh. -Tony Girolo
