My Time as “Artist in Residence” at the Denver Children’s Museum, Fall 2017

Today is my last official Open Studio as the artist in residence at the Children’s Museum in Denver! (If you are in the area, please come say hello!)

The three months have flown by! I still have some finishing touches to do on my leave behind art piece and get to finish off my stay at the museum with a party on the 25th of October. But, I wanted to write this post and share a few of my favorite moments from the past three months with you and also invite you to the closing reception. Getting to be part of the magic that the Children’s Museum staff creates on a daily basis was such a gift and getting to play alongside kids and families and create art together was a dream. I’m still pinching myself that I got the job. Enjoy flipping through these photos!

I’ll see you Wednesday, October 25th at 6 PM! Here’s the info for the event.

A giant color collage we made on my first open studio day.

Making mountains out of words –

Painting eclipses the day before the great American eclipse with visitors from around the world getting ready to head to Wyoming.

Museum goers’ tiny contributions to my leave behind piece

Painting stars –

Here is a nice little write up they did about me –

Creating a blue zoo –

Working on my “leave behind art” piece

   

A particularly adorable visitor testing out my stage for me

A little corner of the studio –

Planning for my family workshop where we made little table top paper theaters

One of the kid’s finished theaters

A workshop with Kindergarteners making shadow puppet monsters inspired by “In the Hall of the Mountain King”

And more work on the leave behind piece…

October 2017 Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

Happy October friends! Goodbye summer!

I been enjoying reading this Mary Oliver Poem called Song for Autumn

In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind? And don’t you think
the trees themselves, especially those with mossy,
warm caves, begin to think
 
of the birds that will come — six, a dozen — to sleep
inside their bodies? And don’t you hear
the goldenrod whispering goodbye,
the everlasting being crowned with the first
tuffets of snow? The pond
vanishes, and the white field over which
the fox runs so quickly brings out
its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its
bellows. And at evening especially,
the piled firewood shifts a little,
longing to be on its way.

 

Much love,

Betony

September 2017 Free Calendar Desktop and iPhone Wallpaper

I’m a couple of days late on this one! Sorry about that. For the background of this one,  I found this cool floral print around a really old map of LA. It reminded me so much of what I love about September – that in-between of summer and autumn. I deconstructed the print and created this cool repeating floral print with cut botanicals on top. Hope you enjoy it!

Much love,

Betony

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!
