July 2017 Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

It is fun for me to make these desktop backgrounds each month because I don’t plan them out. The direction they end up is often as much of a surprise for me as it is for you. This month, I started with a star themed red pastel drawing and ended up here with this bold background. Parts of it are pulled from a swatch of 1940’s wallpaper.  Fun, right?

May Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

Here in Colorado, May 1st is the planting date. Which means we shouldn’t (fingers crossed) have any more freezes. It means I get to visit the local plant nursery for the first time of the season and come home with all sorts of new flower and veggie babies. It means summer is inevitable. It means school is wrapping up and days are lengthening. It feels hopeful and exciting. Full of anticipation for the rest and relaxation of lazy days. Hopefully these new little artworks will bring a little bit of the spirit of May to your spaces.

Much Love,

Betony

April Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

I have been clearing out my garden, raking up old leaves, cutting back dead grasses, getting everything ready for new growth. In April I want clean and bright; signs of the onset of real spring weather and sunshine. So, enjoy this bright open new wallpaper for your screens for when you are stuck inside and can’t get out and enjoy the actual outside.

February Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

This February wallpaper is inspired by thoughts of togetherness and finding beauty across cultural divides. Tim called this desktop “Rooftops of the World”. Perhaps I’ve been watching too much Mary Poppins alongside reading too much news. Enjoy!

September Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

In honor of September, here is a little poem by Tyler Knott Gregson

Autumn is coming.  It may be the sneakiest season;
it disguises itself with warm winds and late evening golden light. 
It wraps itself in colors that look like fire and the slowly fading sound of crickets at night. 

It comes without warning and without apology and before you know it,
the air is cold and the leaves are falling and the Summer you thought you were enjoying is just a memory.
Sly.  So sly.

(If you can, check out Tyler’s typewriter series. Pretty great stuff)

And, here is a new set of Wallpaper set for your September enjoyment. Most of the Cyanotypes are from the 1890’s by a British photographer/botanist named Anna Atkins courtesy of the New York Public Library and the V&A Collections. These images take me back to my college days volunteering in the UNC herbarium.
