The painting looks like Keith is smoking right next to a girl named Julia, as you can see that theirs a blue thing that looks like a fist and the fist looks like it's punching the girl Julia. I think that Keith is showing his gay side in this painting because of the way he is punching and smoking in front of the girl.
