GIFTS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE EVERYTHING

I made a brand new good friend and I like him very a lot. He’s superior. I’ve been eager to get him a present for some time. The factor is, he has all the things. And I’ve been working circles in my head, making an attempt to think about one thing to provide him that doesn’t price an arm and a leg however continues to be unique sufficient that nobody else on the planet has it.

I did consider portray him a brooch initially – after we weren’t shut associates. However portray a bespoke brooch requires intimate data of the particular person. Who’re they? What do they like? What does their life seem like? And so on.

GETTING TO KNOW SOMEONE

Then, in January, I acquired to spend some little or no alone-time with him and acquired to know him higher. I spent one other 3-4 months enthusiastic about our conversations and all of the issues he advised me. And eventually, someday, after actually making notes concerning the concepts and ideas swimming round in my head, I acquired it.

CUSTOM PAINTING THEM A BROOCH

The idea itself is a bit summary, and the portray is much more summary. I used to be and nonetheless am going via a section of portray Impressionist Brooches, and Monet and Van Gogh are replete with Poppy Fields. The brooch is known as “Afeem”. “Afeem” means “opium”. Opium is derived from the Poppy flower. That feels like a really literal rationalization however the inspiration has so many layers to it that that rationalization was reserved for the be aware I wrote to Siddharth together with the brooch. There are a number of etymological roots of the phrase and historic affiliation with Opium that match slightly nicely with who Siddharth is.

GETTING A PHOTOGRAPH OF THEM WEARING SAID BROOCH

I visited him once more in July and at last acquired pictures of him sporting the brooch. Ugh. I like it that he wore it on a white kurta. He wore it a number of instances and most instances we had been too busy having conversations that I all the time forgot to get {a photograph}.

TECHNICALITIES

The brooch is painted with acrylics on a 2.5 inch diameter wooden base. It has a magnet clasp on the again – in order to not destroy the silks that Siddharth wears. The brooch was additionally accompanied by a Certificates of Authenticity, which is a characteristic with all my work. In case Siddharth didn’t just like the visible enchantment of the piece, he might reward it ahead with provenance. ( I firmly consider that when I’ve gifted one thing to another person, it isn’t mine and they’re welcome to do with it as they please. )
