Day 3 Result, Day 4 Idea Request

Well it has not been consecutive days but here is the result of Day 3 of my 30 Day Art Challange.  Heather's idea was randomly selected.  Her idea was: "Sara Groves writes "I just showed up for my own life....the glory of God is man fully alive." What does it look like to choose to live fully alive. Alive to our longings- met and unmet-, alive to who we were truly created to be, unafraid of ourselves, restored, honest in the struggle of the journey we are on, showing up each day as the best version of ourselves..."

Interestingly I have always liked this song myself.  Its really tough to try to produce something with a fairly developed concept in a very short amount of time.  Something like his scene is what I picture when I hear this song and think about this concept.  I have long been intrigued by Van Gogh's "Sower with the Setting Sun" which is about the infinite God and man shown here.  
Some of you may have picked up on the likeness to that painting.  In tribute to his work, and because it so not my normal style and because I only had an hour or so, I did an oil painting.  It is what it is.  Heather it's yours for whatever you want to do with it.   

Ok, let's hear some new ideas (or un-picked ones again, whatever).  I may get to a new one tomorrow night.  Thanks again guys!  


  1. Van Kirk! This is beautiful! I am so intrigued by your whole project and am watching with interest!

  2. The selected subject for today's endeavor is Michael's by the obvious reason that he alone has submitted an idea today. Good for him! And the subject simply is, "Tea." Intertesting. I'll post the result later tonight or tomorrow. In the mean time, get some more ideas ready to toss out. Come on guys, its easy to throw something down, random or whatever, let's hear 'em.

  3. Kirk, it's beautiful! I have tears... It will help to inspire and remind me to show up every day!
