Well, that’s pretty much what happened to Cynthia Coronado, a Houston-based artist who painted an image of the Puerto Rican star sunbathing. The 22-year-old as per her social media profile has a single post with a series of photos featuring her masterpiece, the Twitter post in which Benito Martínez Ocasio (Bad Bunny’s real name) and a time-lapse video of her painting process.
“After many hours of painting, here’s the finished product. I’m so happy he noticed it! Hard work does pay off! Tan feliz que lo vio @badbunnypr,” she captioned.
