This listing is for a giclee print of my original watercolor painting "The Investigator", a portrait of the Enneagram Type 5 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! ***
"Fives are alert, insightful, and curious. They are able to concentrate and focus on developing complex ideas and skills. Independent, innovative, and inventive, they can also become preoccupied with their thoughts and imaginary constructs. They become detached, yet high-strung and intense. They typically have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation. At their best: visionary pioneers, often ahead of their time, and able to see the world in an entirely new way." - Enneagram Institute
Green and dark blue were the colors that most fives I talked to related to best; cool, calm, introspective colors.
The orange flower at the center is an Anthurium, which means "Abundance" - the thing that 5s desire the most; to be capable, competent, and with plenty of reserves to spare.
I chose the pose and the petals extending from the head to highlight the 5s cerebral bent. The plants in the head are Pitch Pine ("Philosophy"), Sycamore ("Curiosity"), Kennedia ("Mental Beauty"), and Lemon ("Secrecy").
The other plants and flowers are as follows:
Maidenhair Firn: "Discretion/Secrecy"
Solomon's Seal: "Discretion"
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.
