This listing is for a giclee print of my original watercolor painting "The Individualist", a portrait of the Enneagram Type 4 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! ***
"Fours are self-aware, sensitive, and reserved. They are emotionally honest, creative, and personal, but can also be moody and self-conscious. Withholding themselves from others due to feeling vulnerable and defective, they can also feel disdainful and exempt from ordinary ways of living. They typically have problems with meloncholy, self-indulgence, and self-pity. At their best: inspired and highly creative, they are able to renew themselves and transform their experiences." -The Enneagram Institute.
I chose the deep indigo and purples as the main colors for this piece to highlight the depth of emotion and sensation that 4s experience. The pinks and brighter blues around the center illustrate their willingness to deal with contrasting emotions, as do the flower meanings (Tiger Lily for "Passion/Desire" and Magnolias for "Grief/Pain").
The hand is held up to the brow to show their constant seeking for identity and true authenticity, and the flowers under the hand are Rue, meaning "Clear Vision"..The flowers at the center are Bittersweet and Chrysanthemum, which both mean "Truth", as 4s deepest desire is to find significance and create meaning and identity for themselves.
The other flowers in the painting are as follows:
Calla Lily: Beauty
Heather: Beauty, Solitude
Magnolia: Love of Nature
Mauve Carnation: Dreams of Fantasy
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.
