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 desirous 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, attempting to consider one thing to present him that doesn’t value an arm and a leg however remains to be unique sufficient that nobody else on the planet has it.

I did consider portray him a brooch initially – once we weren’t shut buddies. But portray a bespoke brooch requires intimate information of the particular person. Who are they? What do they like? What does their life seem like? Etc.

GETTING TO KNOW SOMEONE

Then, in January, I obtained to spend some little or no alone-time with him and obtained to know him higher. I spent one other 3-4 months serious about our conversations and all of the issues he instructed me. And lastly, at some point, after actually making notes concerning the concepts and ideas swimming round in my head, I obtained 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 by a part of portray Impressionist Brooches, and Monet and Van Gogh are replete with Poppy Fields. The brooch known as “Afeem”. “Afeem” means “opium”. Opium is derived from the Poppy flower. That seems like a really literal clarification however the inspiration has so many layers to it that that clarification 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 moderately effectively with who Siddharth is.

GETTING A PHOTOGRAPH OF THEM WEARING SAID BROOCH

I visited him once more in July and at last obtained pictures of him carrying the brooch. Ugh. I adore it that he wore it on a white kurta. He wore it a number of instances and most instances we have been too busy having conversations that I at all times 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 Certificate of Authenticity, which is a characteristic with all my work. In case Siddharth didn’t just like the visible enchantment of the piece, he may reward it ahead with provenance. ( I firmly imagine that after I’ve gifted one thing to another person, it’s not mine and they’re welcome to do with it as they please. )
