Woo-hoooo! Three Finalist ISMA nominations!!!

We have exciting news! We’ve been selected as Finalists in the top-5 for the Folk & Spiritual categories from our 11th CD, “Alii.” Three songs from the CD are on the Finalist list! In the ISMA (Indian Summer Music Awards) the Finalists & Awards are decided by a panel of music industry judges so this one is especially meaningful to us.

The songs are “Love Is Powerful” “Free Thinker” both for Best Folk Recording and “Mending the Sacred Hoop” for Best Spiritual Recording.

Every time we get a nomination it is so exciting! We couldn’t be where we are without your interest & encouragement. Thank you everyone!

And in case you missed the announcement, we released our 12th CD, “Anidohi” (The Messenger) this summer.

Small paintings and cheap camera zen! Small paintings, usually 8" x 8" or smaller, and cheap photography. The paintings are all acrylic, archival, and you can buy prints here: or the originals directly from me. Just shoot me an email or leave a comment on the blog post. All the photos originally taken with some variety of cheap camera. A cell phone, a $40 Vivitar, a Canon Power Shot and now I've started using a Canon ELPH. Cheap cameras are soooo good any more! That plus some awesome processing software, of course. But the point is, you don't need expensive equipment to explore the deeper reaches of reality. Just use the tools you have with the mind and heart you have. I post images and thoughts that lead you into the invisible behind the visible, the reality behind the illusion, the depth beneath the surface. Reality is not what we think it is. It's not even what we might -- or can -- imagine it is. But we have to explore, and we have tools to explore, among them the arts: they can be gateways to that vast unknown country. At least we can stand at the border and look. And someday, maybe, start to take a few steps deeper and deeper into the most magnificent terra incognita that humanity has ever known. One of the reasons I choose to work in digital media is so that anyone can afford it. Very democratic. You shouldn't have to have a big budget to collect really good art. If you have a bigger budget, you can always purchase a larger size and an upgraded framing and matting option. My work is all created as high resolution images, so they'll look great even at the largest sizes. Check it out here. If you enjoy my work, I’d love to hear from you. And if you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoy creating it, why not share it with your friends! Spyder Webb P.S. Yep, that’s my real name. P.P.S.
