A compassionate gaze
16-18 year olds

This is my best friend Bethanie Key, I have known her for over 12 years now. Never have I met someone as kind, loyal and beautiful as her. For practically my whole life I have owed my happiness to her presence and I wouldn’t have it any other way. She is someone that I think that anyone could aspire to be, and is someone that is an excellent role model. I don’t think that any painting could capture her compassion and who she truly is, but this was my best shot.
