philipdelisle.jpgWe all know that too much self-reflection can be a bad thing, but every once in a while somebody comes along and does it right.  Case in point: the works of/by Phil Delisle.  I’m really enjoying his paintings of himself painting paintings of himself painting.  If that sounds confusing, visit his site, you’ll see what I mean.

stewartjones.jpgIt’s possible I’m a bit biased, seeing as he paints in and around one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto, but I really enjoy the work of Stewart Jones. 

Kristine Moran

kristinemoran.jpgThe snow is still falling outside, so it seems appropriate to feature the work of Kristine Moran.  I am especially taken by her depictions of nature imposing itself on man-made infrastructures in violent and abrupt ways.
