Happy New Year!


"You are now in Bedford Falls"

10x8 Acrylic

Happy New Year!
This is a little painting I did a couple of years ago.   One of my all time favorite movies is "It's a Wonderful Life".  Every year we set up the IAWL village with it's little lit up buildings, trees, cars and people.  I think we have the whole set and if not it's too bad because they don't make it anymore.  Every year we get the dvd out and I "make" everyone who is in the house sit down and watch it.  They don't complain anymore as it has become a favorite movie to them as well.

I often don't make New Years resolutions but this year I promise to paint and post more on this drafty old blog.  Let me know how I am doing in a couple of months!!

I love this painting! I didn't know they made a IAWL village. I am so envious! Maybe you can post a photo of your village. I'd love to see the whole scene!

Thanks Sheila!
Target made the IAWL villages in the 90"s. I found the last few pieces on ebay.

Very nice work!
And that's kind of how I feel about The Sound of Music : ) The IAWL village sounds fantastic!
