This week’s Art Jumble challenge is “your favorite movie of all time“. It’s impossible to claim just one movie as my favorite. Among them is It’s a Wonderful Life. Here’s my contribution to this week’s challenge, my version of an illustration featured in the film.
In the film, on their way home from a dance at which they have fallen into a pool, and are forced to wear borrowed clothes, George (James Stewart) offers to lasso the moon for Mary (Donna Reed). Later in the movie, Mary creates a drawing of George doing just that, with the caption “George Lassos the Moon” written in rope. Initially, Mary’s gesture is lost on George, but later in the movie the illustration is seen hanging in their home.
