"The committed, security-oriented type. Sixes are reliable, hard-working, responsible, and trustworthy. Excellent "troubleshooters", they foresee problems and foster cooperation, but can also become defensive, evasive, and anxious -- running on stress while complaining about it. They can be cautious and indecisive, but also reactive, defiant, and rebellious. They typically have problems with self-doubt and suspicion. At their best: internally stable and self-reliant." -Enneagram Institute
I drew the figure looking over their shoulder, since 6s tend to be observant and sometimes anxious; I also created a spray of petals coming from the head to show the 'radar'-like ability they have for foreseeing trouble.
I chose purple for its depth and complexity; a melancholy edge, while also containing warmth.
The green flowers at the center are Heather, Bearded Crepis, and Euphorbia, which all mean "Protection", since 6s most crave security. I chose green as a calming, stable color.
The flowers in the face are Columbine, which stand for "Anxiety".
The rest of the flowers are as follows:
Marigold - "Prediction"
Bluebell - "Constancy"
Mountain Ash - "Prudence"
Enchanter's Nightshade - "Skepticism"
Goldenrod - "Precaution"
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 Loyalist - Type 6
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.
