June 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

June 2016 1440x900

Welcome to June!  I’m in Vermont and it’s green like I ain’t never seen.  I spent the past few days painting in a field overlooking some hills here in the Northeast Kingdom.  In a bold and brilliant cross-promotional gambit, I have converted the resulting oil painting into a new background for June!

May 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

Howdy folks! Happy May! It doesn’t look much like spring out here in Vermont (read: it’s freezing cold for this Californian), but there are some very beautiful churches. Here’s a new background for your desktop:

April 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

April 2016 Desktop Calendar Background by Gabriel Roberts

Hello my dear friends and Happy April! Just because “April” is capitalized, does that mean I have to capitalize “happy” as well? I didn’t just then. This perhaps shows that I’m a bit reluctant to capitalize the word unnecessarily.

In any case, welcome to a new month and a new image to look at when you first turn on your computer, or when you’re aimlessly tooling the landscape of your desktop. I spent a heavily-caffeinated hour and a half this morning organizing my desktop and BOY did it feel good. So many duplicate photos deleted, so many little files ushered into their proper little folders. Happily they went, joyfully taking up position in alphabetical order, relieved to no longer be floating aimlessly in constant fear of never being found.

The image above comes from Copacabana, Bolivia. Although less famous than Copacabana, Brazil, it is still very much called Copacabana, and it lies on the sunny shores of Lake Titicaca. I had the great pleasure of being a tourist in this beautiful place. I took this photo from the ferry, looking back at Copacabana harbor, en route to La Isla del Sol.

Wishing you a wonderful 30 days of April!

March 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

Better late than never? February was a short month, you see. The end of the month really snuck up on me. Apparently “snuck” is not a word. But I shan’t use “sneaked”! Here’s a new desktop calendar background for your computer screen:

This is a street in Cochabamba, Bolivia. I did a bit of Photoshop painting to clear away some of the web of power lines, and clean up some of the walls.

February 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

Good day friends! Welcome to the month of February. Months like this one only come around every four years. That’s right, it’s a leap year! Wow. A whole extra day at the very end of the month. It ought to be a holiday. Or some sort of free-for-all all-you-can-eat two-for-one extravaganza. Well, we’ve got a whole month to make plans. Here’s a new background for your desktop:

This is a photo of a pedestrian bridge here in Cochabamba, Bolivia. I’ve scrawled the dates of the month on the side wall like graffiti, and circled the Sundays in green. Sunday the 14th, Valentine’s Day, is surrounded by a heart. Admittedly, this is not a very convenient calendar. If you want a clearly legible calendar, please see below. If you never use this background as a calendar or appreciate the challenge of discerning which day of the week the numbers correspond to, click one of the following links to download the background:

Here’s the legible version of the background, which I’m calling “February 2016 B”:

Here are the links for version B:

For the record, this month marks five years of the desktop calendar backgrounds here at gaberobertsart.com.
Wishing you a wonderful month!

Here we go again folks! 2016 is off and running and we’re getting into some pretty strange territory here. Two thousand and sixteen? Twenty sixteen?!? It’s the future!

This month’s calendar features a photo of Montreal. I loved the way these construction cones stood out so brightly against the white. It’s an especially hot orange.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with love. Here’s to 2016 being the very best year in history.

I took this photo from Robertson Ave on a walk here in Carmichael.  How about that cactus-trailer combo, eh?
