Surprised by Art #10 "Struggle" W/Guest Don Watkins

Updated: Jun 16, 2021




We were happy to have author Don Watkins on the show for our summer finale.


The topic this week was "struggle."


As always Luc chose a painting and Kirk selected a poem. Stick around till the end for a special surprise.


Don is the co-author of the best selling books Free Market Revolution and Equal is Unfair.

He's the host of the show Liberty Unlocked and he teaches communication skills at donswriting.com


Special Thanks to our voice recording volunteers

Below is the sculpture chosen by Luc Travers. We recommend that you take a moment and look at the painting for yourself.


Give it a title. Doesn't matter if you are correct. Just think, what is the first word that comes to mind first?

Then, give a literal description of everything in the painting.


In the show, we have various audience members doing exactly this, and if you listen to them this can help give you ideas on how to accomplish this investigation.


Lastly, interpretation. You can do your best on your own or listen to Luc and Kirk's exploration.

Ok here comes the painting! Remember: DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE ARTIST'S NAME OR THE TITLE OF THE ARTWORK UNTIL AFTER YOU SEE THE PAINTING!
