Shrimp Boats at Dusk – Charleston, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Charleston County Photos  |  Shrimp Boats at Dusk

Below is an oil painting by Charleston artist Chuck Morris. As the ships come in at dusk with their haul, the pace of the day slows. The majestic shrimp boats are left to bask in the sunset while the captains of the fleet head home. The boats represent a full day’s labor and food on the table.

Chuck Morris got the idea for this painting while puttering around in a jon boat on Shem Creek near the Old Village in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The scene as captured from the water line shows the magnitude of the boats as they rest against the dock.

I do love this paintimg and lived very close to Shem Creek for my most formative years. I have never heard the shrimp boats referred to as “ships,” though.
