Ever since hopping a train boxcar to sketch America in his youth, Thomas Kinkade loved to travel and paint. And one of his favorite destinations was the magnificent European mountain range, The Alps. Traveling throughout these snowcapped mountains with his wife Nanette and their children, Thom crafted a number of important works such as "The Matterhorn", "Spring in the Alps" and "Heiligen Blut". As the family hiked the peaceful alpine pastures at the foot of these stunning mountain peaks, they were fond of singing songs from their favorite musical, The Sound of Music. These memories are cherished by the Kinkade family - memories of nature's beauty, the love of family, the fun of adventure, and the visual reminder to not be afraid to "Climb ev'ry mountain, Ford ev'ry stream, Follow ev'ry rainbow, Till you find your dream."
These great memories and themes are wonderfully captured in The Thomas Kinkade Studios' painting, The Sound of Music. Leaving behind the beauty and safety of an idyllic life and home in Austria, the von Trapp family risks everything to follow their dream - a life together wrapped in the love of faith, family and home - the things they truly believe in. This historic musical, The Sound of Music, was the final collaboration between the legendary team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II - two men who also dared to dream, and ended up giving the world - and the Kinkade family - the most beloved musical of all time.
With a canvas size of 14" x 14", this is the perfect size for the smaller wall space. The Thomas Kinkade Studios released this image in April of 2014. This image of The Sound of Music is based on the Broadway Musical by the same name. The couple under the tree in the background can be interpreted as either - Maria and the Captain or Liesl and Rolf. Maria and the seven children are singing along the waterfront. The Captain can be seen looking on from the front step Three nuns from the Abbey are walking along the path on the left. The Abbey can be seen up in the hills above the von Trapp home. The meadow in the mountainside above the home is where Maria sings The Sound of Music.

About Gallery Wrap:
Bring the premium style of the art gallery into your home with a gallery wrap print. In gallery wrap canvas, the artwork extends around the sides of the canvas, and the fabric canvas is attached to the back, not the sides, of the solid wood stretcher frame. You won't see any staples on the sides of the piece, so the artwork is ready to hang as is, or makes a dramatic statement in a frame of your choice.
