Lovely, lovely, lovely. This image reminds me of something from when I was younger: a kid’s book founded on Salvador Dali’s paintings. So to me, it is wonderfully nostalgic. The sharp colours contribute much as well. Blues, reds and oranges are popping like balloons all over the place.

More to it perhaps? Maybe. Two faces not making eye contact whose brains are above water, marinating in the clean, warm air. Clearly, this is a shallow relationship, with complex, surreptitious interworkings.
