Ever since hopping a train box car 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 known as, 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 HeiligenBlut.
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.
