St. Michaels by Moonlight

"St. Michaels by Moonlight" by Paul McGehee depicts the waterfront of the historic Maryland town under the soft light of the rising moon during the afterglow of twilight. The Hooper Strait lighthouse, one of the last screw-pile lighthouses of the Chesapeake, stands at Navy Point on the grounds of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. The lighthouse was built in 1879 and originally stood watch over the shoals of Hooper Strait, a shallow and legendarily-dangerous thoroughfare for boats bound from the Chesapeake Bay across to Tangier Sound and Deal Island and the many landings and docks along the Nanticoke and Wicomico Rivers. Calling itself "The Heart and Soul of the Chesapeake Bay," the town of St. Michaels today retains the look and feel of a 19th century seaport. You can walk on red brick sidewalks past the Victorian homes and boutique shops of the historic district, or head down to the pier in search of famously fresh seafood at popular restaurants like "The Crab Claw." The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum preserves the history of St. Michaels, with restored examples of "bugeyes" and "skipjacks," unique boats developed by the fisherman of Chesapeake Bay. "St. Michaels by Moonlight" is an archival quality limited edition print of only 500 pieces, faithfully reproduced from Paul's original color pencil drawing, each print hand-signed by the artist.
