June 2020 Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

When we were kids, I remember going hiking in the Colorado wilderness and my dad teaching us how elevation maps worked. We would unroll the plastic coated guide throughout our adventure and watch how the landforms under our feet mirrored the fine lines on the map, leading us to new worlds.

June is a month when I want to get out and explore those landforms of the world. And maybe you are in a place where that is possible right now. And maybe you are not. But we can all still find little worlds to adventure into even if they are as small as a window box outside our door. It’s all about noticing – about how little steps can slowly climb a mountain.

May 2020 Free Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

I am getting ready to start a mural downtown this week. It feels good to be heading toward something tangible with a start and a finish. This desktop was inspired by one of the design concepts that didn’t get picked. But I still enjoy the vibrant colors and I hope they will bring some brightness to your screens. Happy May friends!!

April 2020 Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

We have different seasons in our lives. 

Sometimes we are in chapters of new growth – sending out shoots, growing leaves, soaking up the sunshine. We build and stretch and expand.

At other times, we bear fruit. After seasons of pooling energy and summers of sunshine into our growth, we produce beautiful things. We celebrate all the hard work that came before, and send our gifts into the world.

And then of course there are the times when you need anchors. When all your resources and energy are poured into just standing strong. It’s a time when you are building on the structures that hold you up. We are navigating this harsh reality we have found ourselves in. We have shut down all the production, all the exterior, and now we just have to wait, and be, and stay strong in our roots.

Love you friends. I’m glad we are at least all in this together.

P.S. Remember last month when I said I really dread March? I hate being right sometimes…

March 2020 Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper

For the last five years (at least), something really difficult has happened to our family in March. One year it was our daughters bout with seizures, one year was the fight that almost ended our marriage, last year Tim’s dad’s cancer surgery, one year a miscarriage, etc. I know I always talk about how each season is my favorite, but after the past years, March has become the month I dread. Yesterday I was telling my husband how I have this sense of impending doom already. And I don’t want that. I don’t want to be that person. Historically March is the end of winter. It’s the month when the store rooms are bare. It’s the last leg of the hard race of winter. So it makes sense that it would be a place where pruning happens and we experience hardship. But it’s also where we get to see the hope of spring. It’s where the grays of winter start to recede and we discover crocuses under the snow. The light begins to grow stronger. And the plants know. Over the years, I realized that I usually gravitate towards themes of color, and light, and spectrum in March. We are in a place where we are longing for light. So friends, let’s head out into the sunshine and feel the air strengthening our weary bones. Happy March friends!

December 2019 Desktop Wallpaper

This wallpaper is created from a commissioned painting I completed last month. The painting is titled “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in” which is from a Leonard Cohen song. I thought it the perfect ode to December as these days are darkening but we celebrate the lights.

September 2019 Desktop Wallpaper

Happy September!

Welcome to September -a month filled to the brim with new energy for the season, an embarking on new endeavors, a month filled with learning, and full of the fruits of our gardens. I hope you have lots of fun and adventure to look forward to. I plan on visiting our local orchard to pick apples, pulling out all the fall decorations, lighting the autumn scented candles, and paying attention as the season begins to shift.

Much love to you,

Betony

Because I grew up on an apple orchard, I get so excited about the onset of fruit picking season. It is one of my very favorite seasons. As farmer’s market stands start to showcase the fruits of their labor, something in me starts to celebrate right along with them. I don’t have any fruit trees at our new house (yet), but I have a secret map of fruit tree locations around town that are on public property, abandoned parking lots, or back alleys that I sneakily (ha ha) frequent as their apples and other fruits start to ripen. This wallpaper is inspired by all of you teachers and students heading back to school and also you apple-picking sisters and brothers.

Much love, Betony

For these desktop wallpapers, what I’ve realized is that I design for what I am dreaming about. So although most of the trees around me are still bare ( we had snow yesterday!) I’m looking forward to being immersed in lush canopies of green. And maybe where you are those already exist, or maybe you are further north than I and are still longing for the first blooms of spring. Either way my hope is that your May is rich with fresh air and new growth. Thanks for continuing to support my family and my artwork. Much love always,

Betony
