The Weekly Portrait: John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand, painted by Barbi

I visited my friend Barbi today and came away with this photo of her latest painting.
A portrait of John Key, an ex merchant banker with $50,000,000 personal profit garnered from whatever the hell it is merchant bankers do
He's now the leader of the right wing National Party and Prime Minister of New Zealand and one of Barbi's heroes.
Barbi grew up in a farming family, traditional National Party supporters.
I did not and am not but she is a good friend and one of my favourite artists and in this painting you can see why
