"Why is she turned away from the camera?"
"There's no camera, it's a painting."
"You know what I mean. Why is she… why can't we see her face? Why would he paint her like that?"
"Who knows? Maybe they were alienated. Maybe she loved the flowers more than him. Maybe the flowers are a symbol of something, maybe beauty, I don't know. Maybe she left him for a more beautiful man. And with the fallen petals he's saying that her new love will fade and die like their old love, like any living thing."
"Jesus, you're a real downer."
