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 wonderfully imagined paintings complement the weekly spreads of this calendar. Full-spread monthly grids are found at the front of the calendar and functional pockets are included inside the front and back covers.
