The late Jay Steensma goes down in the books as a second-generation Morris Graves, and it's true that he painted brushy birds and faces and flowers on delicate papers. But really, his lesser-known visions are darker, stranger, and humbler than the Big Mystic's, and they can crawl right into your little heart; they just want some rest. By contrast, self-taught artist Ree Brown—a longtime friend of Steensma's—makes essentially happy paintings. They're bright, sweet, and contentedly imperfect.
