Psychic abilities to painted Buddhist teachings

Spinning, West Coast Swing Dancers; 36x48" oil/canvas. Jodee Clifford. 2018

That feeling when a random youtube video about psychic abilities connects a Buddhist teaching to your current series of work

Mid-video over coffee, I debated whether or not I should share this one here. Russell Targ has some fascinating stories but how relevant it is to my art? Plus it’s long. How closely should I keep blog things focused?

I do have that Intuition is my Superpower shirt. This ties closely to that, but the shirts are commercial art, and only distantly related to what I’m doing.

Poetically vanishing art dance shirts

Make Art With Dance silk screen

Make Art With Dance tankIn June, I did an art project in Atlantic City and asked a number of people for help.
