Art We Like: Clay Stinnett at Smoke and Mirrors

Outsider art is fun, especially when it's made by local dark horse Clay Stinnett. His depictions of wrong-eyed souls are three parts sideshow, one part Crumb thrown together in a brown paper bag with flour and seasoning, shook up and deep-fried. I also have a hunch that when those shape-shifting lizard people of the fourth dimension arrive -- if they haven't already -- Clay's paintings will grace the halls of the White House. They're strange enough to please a morphing intergalactic species and humorous enough to elicit grins from boring old human sapiens, too. Here are a couple more, just to make you smile.
