This is one of three little paintings I did playing with colorful block cities and ladders reaching for the sky.  These ladders in particular remind me of the ladder to heaven that Jacob dreamed of  in the desert while fleeing from his brother, Esau.  I like thinking of these ladders as symbols of faith that we've propped up from a tremendous variety of temples and ideologies all over the world. Unfortunately, most of our buildings lack windows.
