Meadowland Wall Calendar Reviewed

Sam Timm 2017 Calendar For Lovers Of Nature

Calendar Year 2017 from Pixabay.com
I am still a little old school when it comes to keeping track of the days of the year. I love to keep at least one wall calendar in the house and I have a lovely one to monitor the months of 2017 to share with you.

One of my Christmas gifts this year was a gorgeous wall calendar with the art of Sam Timm included on each of the 12 month sections.Each month showcases one of his incredibly detailed paintings of scenes from a meadow land including birds that are seen in his native Wisconsin. Mr. Timm would appear to be connected to my soul as he sees the same beauty surrounding his life as I do in mine. 

Several of the pictures in this wall calendar include my favorite bird, the cardinal. Although there is not one picture that I dislike, I think my most favorite is the one for August which shows two gorgeous cardinals resting on sunflowers. It just takes my breath away. That image also happens to be the cover image of the wall calendar.

I was also delighted to see that for the month of April (the month of my birth) the picture chosen was of a male and female cardinal perched on a fence among daisies. March which is the month of my husband's birth is a lovely painting of a male and female deer. Anyone who knows me knows my spiritual connection with the deer and would see the symbolism that this picture would have for me.

Sam Timm is not just an artist but also a minister and I think that might explain his choice of scenes to paint. He is a man of faith and it comes through in the images he chooses to share with the world. He obviously sees the beauty of our creator in the simplest of images in the wild. A couple of birds surrounded by flowers or a bald eagle flying over a church. The wonders of nature and creation caught in a glimpse by this most talented artist.

The calendar itself is published by Lang so the paper is a high quality and the pictures are so beautiful that I will probably keep them even after the year of 2017 is complete. They would be lovely to frame!

So, if you are like me and like to have a wall calendar in your home or office and also enjoy nature scenes, birds and flowers I can highly recommend this 2017 wall calendar showcasing the art work of Sam Timm. I am pretty sure that you will not be disappointed!

  3. We also have a wall calendar and though I no longer write daily appointments or schedules on that particular calendar, I do love having the calendar and art on the wall. It simply makes it easy to see the days of the month at a glance. Of course, I had to click on the calendar and look at all of the artwork since, as you know, I am a nature lover too. The deer for March are gorgeous, but that December photo is with the cardinal in the snow is stunningly gorgeous. This really is a beautiful wall calendar.

  4. These are exceptionally beautiful paintings and one really talented artist. I love the cardinals too. They are just such a glorious bird. I must admit that I love the eagle too and it's July's bird (my birth month), so I'm a little drawn to that one. They are all beautiful though.
