When people ask me what my dreams are, they probably don’t expect my biggest dream to be something as simple and common as getting married. But there it is, I’ve always dreamed of finding my Prince Charming. In the meantime, I live vicariously through the love stories of fictional characters and anyone else who has a satisfying romantic story. I also love the Sound of Music for every other reason ever: the music lifts my soul, Maria is basically the person I want to be, and then there’s the whole love story thing. In this painting, I depicted one of my favorite moments of the musical, when Georg proposes to Maria, and I included the song the Reverend Mother sings, reminding myself that I will find my dreams–I just need to climb mountains and put myself out in God’s beautiful creation to get there.
