“Jacob’s Ladder” represents the connection between Heaven and earth. It is a tribute to my mom who recently passed away. She loved reading the Bible. This was one of the last stories from the Bible I read to her before she passed. The painting has no earthly land and the characters are ascending and playing on floating islands in the sky. This was a wish for my mom to be happy and free…at peace.
The painting also represents the playfulness and joy of new beginnings. My Mom and I loved to play games together and the characters in this painting are no different. The Dragon is playing Jacob’s Ladder and Humpty Dumpty plays Yo-Yo while they ascend.
