Details: Each season holds its own unique promise, which it fulfills in countless beautiful ways. Spring apples the countryside in colorful wildflowers, and summer offers warm breezes enjoyed on a lazy porch swing. Autumn burns brightly in the trees and turns fields to gold, while winter smoothes the hard edges with a layer of brilliant, frosty whiteness. Artist John Sloane celebrates all of the seasons in exquisitely detailed paintings that capture not only their beauty, but also a bygone simplicity of an earlier time. John Sloane's twelve original paintings included in the lovely John Sloane's Country Seasons 2014 Deluxe Wall Calendar invite all to step back in time to when buggies were the latest mode of transport and friends spent long hours on shady porches.
