"Threes are self-assured, attractive, and charming. Ambitious, competent, and energetic, they can also be status-conscious and highly driven for advancement. They are diplomatic and poised, but can also be overly concerned with their image and what others think of them. They typically have problems with workaholism and competitiveness. At their best: self-accepting, authentic, everything they seem to be-- role models who inspire others." -Enneagram Institute 


I chose jewel-toned versions of some common 'power colors' to show the confidence that 3s possess, and shifted the colors across the body to illustrate their chameleon-like ability to fit the mood or situation in any gathering. 


The golden flower in the center is the Amaryllis, which means "Worth Beyond Beauty", to illustrate their core desire of being truly worthy and acceptable for who they are. 


Hidden among the other flowers are two sprigs of Foxglove, which mean "Insecurity", as 3s can vacillate between high self-confidence and crippling self-doubt. 


Other flowers are as follows:

Amethyst - "Admiration"

Bumblebee Orchid - "Industry"

Camellia Japonica - "Unpretending Excellence"

Dwarf Sunflower - "Admiration"

Gladiolus - "Strength of Character"

Hollyhock - "Ambition"

Mountain Laurel - "Ambition"

Mountain Pink - "Aspiration"

Red Clover - "Industry"

Rye - "Changeable Disposition"

This painting is a 24x36" original watercolor on stretched cotton canvas, sealed with a matte varnish for protection. It ships unframed, but wired and ready to hang.


Included with the painting will be a small card that indicates each flower and its meaning, as well as a certificate of authenticity.

The Achiever - Type 3

  • Each painting is sealed with a matte spray varnish for protection against humidity and sunlight; however, for best preservation I recommend hanging out of direct sunlight, and away from anywhere water might be sprayed or splashed (ie kitchen, bathroom, etc).

  • Paintings will be carefully packaged and shipped through UPS.
