Moonlight Departure depicts a full moon rising over the Rappahannock River near Windmill Point on Virginia's Northern Neck. The timeless beauty of the Rappahannock River inspired the artist to capture the peaceful tranquility of the old farmhouse and quiet cove as Canada geese take flight overhead. First settled in the early 1600s, the Rappahannock's shores were rich in tobacco fields which dominated the trade of the Bay until the beginning of the Civil War. Today the fragile beauty of the Chesapeake is slowly giving way to the advancement of population and technology.
