Want to be the proud owner of an original painting by noted waterfront artist Naima Rauam? Now’s your chance!

“Tug Between Two Freighters”, watercolor painting by Naima Rauam.

The Working Harbor Committee will be raffling off an original Naima Rauam painting worth $1,400 at our annual fundraiser for our maritime educational programs. Naima has generously donated this wonderful painting “Tug Between Two Freighters” for our causes.

New York City’s harbor is a busy waterway, with vessels large and small making their way to myriad destinations.

The light source is behind the vessel on the left, and flows toward the tug and large ship on the right. Air seems to flow with it, for there is a sense of movement. – Naima Rauam
