I desire to put the best world forward. Each painting is therefore a mixture of the real and the ideal, a dream of a time and place where life is simple, peaceful, and unhurried. --John Sloane For his 2015 calendars, artist John Sloane once again creates beautifully detailed paintings that celebrate the beauty of each season and invite us to experience the quiet joy of country living. John Sloane's amazing paintings offer a respite from a world of modern distractions. The scenes in this al-new twenty-ninth edition of his wall calendar are the perfect places in which to linger and enjoy the country life of a bygone era.
