BRONXWOOD - A Bronxwood man is using his artistic talents to raise the hopes of sick children across the borough. Iggy Molina has painted around 40 portraits of Mother Theresa and other religious figures and says he hopes to donate all of them to a children's center in The Bronx. "While they've been sick in a center, in a hospital, wherever, they can enjoy something like this and maybe find inspiration," says Molina. He says some of his paintings take three years to create and that he is still searching for a location that will accept his artwork.
