Zooey is the intelligent young adult character taken from the Salinger novelettes and in this image he appears as a young figure surrounded by the colourful riches of life and far from his cigars and cigarettes. The space in the image is compact as though in a theatre stage setting filled with symbolism such as a lofty living dwelling representing ambition and a jug of water representing health and wellbeing.
Also drenched amidst the warm hues are flowers and trees adding fertility and strength to the occasion. The style of the painting is lose, partly layered, refreshing and confident which are all qualities that can be related to the open mindedness of the standing figure of Zooey.
