Moonrise
$2,500 – charcoal – 28" x 12"  /  framed 33" x 17"

A full moon is all about drama. I'm accentuating this drama by rendering the tower of the Brooklyn Bridge as a dense, dark form. The bridge is more sensed than seen. – N.R.

Blue Night
$1,700 – charcoal & pastel – 20" x 15"  /  framed 25" x 20"

The Manhattan tower of the Brooklyn Bridge soars more than 275 feet above the East River. Opened in 1883, the bridge has become an important landmark and cultural icon. An average of 4,000 pedestrians, 2,500 cyclists and 120,000 motorists cross it every day. Countless artists have been inspired by it.

I walk past the bridge almost daily and have come to appreciate its many moods. Here I contrast the dark solidity of the bridge with a soft disappearing tower on a foggy night. Diffusing the lights along the cables enhances the magical quality. – N.R.

Brooklyn Bridge
$1,400 – charcoal – 26" x 9"  /  framed 31" x 14"

I am focusing on elements of the bridge seen as almost fragments, without the sweep of the land and the water to distract attention. – N.R.

Journeymen on South Street   Journeymen on South Street
$800 – charcoal – 12" x 18" unframed

Journeymen from the Fulton Fish Market push hand trucks loaded with seafood up and down South Street. Their destinations are buyers' trucks parked in loading zones at the edges of the market.

An elevated highway structure, on the right side, shades the street and ties the men together in the composition. The dark areas frame the activity in the distance, rendered in half tones. – N.R.

Tuna Cutter
  Tuna Cutter
$1,200 – charcoal – 24" x 18" unframed

It is the custom at Fulton Fish Market to remove the center bones, the rack, all at once when cutting tuna. The result is four long loins of dark red meat. This cutter has already removed the top two sections.

I always stop to watch a tuna cutter perform this dramatic step in carving up a big fish. I want to convey the man's intense concentration. – N.R.

Heaving Swordfish  

Heaving Swordfish
$1,800 – charcoal – 22" x 30" unframed

It is not unusual to see large swordfish at Fulton Fish Market. Swordfish arrive gutted, with head and tail removed, and packed with ice. The two men, with the swordfish between them, make a perfect arc in this brief pause of movement. – N.R.

Hauling Fish   Hauling Fish
$1,100 – charcoal – 22" x 15" unframed

Charcoal is such a flexible medium. I can get a range of middle tones, deep darks in an even texture, and still describe a line on top of it all. – N.R.

Delivering His Fish
 

Delivering His Fish
$800 – charcoal – 11" x 15" unframed

The single figure on the left looks toward the two on the right, whose bulky forms nearly exit the composition, save for the lone figure's gaze. – N.R.

A Box of Fish
 

A Box of Fish
$1,200 – charcoal – 24" x 18" unframed

This is done in a tighter style than most of my charcoals. I got quite carried away by the fine detail of these fish. They were so fresh and beautiful; I could not resist rendering them in this manner. – N.R.
