She loves New York. As part of her application for the Painter in Residence program, Patti Mollica explained that painting in the urban environment offers her a singular opportunity to highlight the beauty and wonder in everyday city life. Our third commissioned artist of the summer works primarily in oil and acrylics, and chooses to sketch some of her subjects before putting the brush to canvas.
Just as with our other painters, it has been fascinating to watch Mollica's process. Get a glimpse of her in progress now, or see more of her work on her website and daily painting blog. We can't wait to unveil the impressive collection that we're building this summer.
Only one painter remains for this summer's program. Yuka Imata will be in the park from August 13 through August 24.
