Jacob's Ladder

Jacob's Ladder



This painting reminded me of a hymn I sang as a child: 'We are climbing Jacob's Ladder.' I certainly don't remember all the words, but I do remember the feeling of awe at the ineffable mystery of our universe. The only time I feel that now is when I paint, or when I see something in nature that is incredibly inspiring, like the recent solar eclipse.
