Finally, an artist who’s captured my true essence! I’ve been waiting centuries for this. He totally caught me off-guard. Had I known Roberto Parada intended to paint me in the nude, I’d have lost a few extra pounds. I forgive Roberto because he accepts me as I am.
Some of the masters who painted me in my youth didn’t begin to capture the real me. For starters, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a halo. So pre-Renaissance. This guy Roberto gets me, like he sees into my soul. I’m just glad he didn’t see what I chucked behind the tree stump when I caught him creeping up behind me.
