This listing is for a giclee print of my original watercolor painting "The Helper", a portrait of the Enneagram Type 2 personality type.
*** These prints are ordered from an off-site printer and drop-shipped to you; that speeds up delivery and helps out a tired artist-mom, but does mean I can't include extras like the flower descriptions. Feel free to copy-paste and print the description below! ***
"Twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted. ... They are well meaning and driven to be close to others, but can slip into doing things for others in order to be needed. They typically have problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging their own needs. At their best: unselfish and altruistic, they have unconditional love for others."
I chose a calm, happy blue for the 2s, with a glowing pink heart made of Jonquil, which mean "Love Me".
The hands are catching and holding petals of the Allspice flower, which means "Comfort".
I chose a rose for the head, as 2s are very focused on loving and being loved, and roses are typically accepted as the 'love flower'.
The petals at the very bottom towards the back are wilting, because of the 2s penchant for not noticing their own needs as they focus on others.
The other flowers within the body are:
Mezereon - "Desire To Please"
Aster - "love"
Ambrosia- "Your Love Is Reciprocated"
Pear blossoms- "Comfort"
High-quality giclee prints on a lightly textured watercolor paper make these prints as close to the original as they can get!
I recommend pairing with an off-white mat in your favorite frame.
