Climbing, Always Climbing
Second image in my Jack and the Beanstalk series. Tried to keep it simple, and focus on shapes. Fun to do, thinking about a bean plant that climbs into the sky. But as I researched into bean plants, I realized that they are vine-like, and climb only when they have something to climb. So how was this beanstalk climbing? What was pulling it up? I struggled with that a bit in my image, until I remembered that I was forgetting about an element integral to this story and children's stories in general: magic. Ah, yes, that old magic. Ta-da!
