Where Does this Ladder Lead?

I came across this pic today of a painting I did almost 10 years ago. It surprises me how different it is from most of my work today. And I seriously wonder what my concept was when I painted it?! It is sad to admit that I haven’t the faintest idea of what it could have meant to me at the time… Ha ha! The painting hangs in the home of one of my dear friends, she loves it and she has her own theory on what it means. However, it’d be really fun to hear if any of you folks out there have an interpretation? No pressure though… πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday,
