” Will it be here… a place which will not elude us ? “

“Will it be here that we shall find a place
which will not elude us, or which if it remains
does not exert on us a culpable attraction?

Or must we, leaning over the deck and
watching the shores glide by,
move forever onward?”

― André Gide, Urien’s Voyage

“…the two most beautiful words in the English language”

“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

Henry James


“Some of us aren’t meant to belong. Some of us have to turn the world upside down…”

 

“Some of us aren’t meant to belong.
Some of us have to turn the world upside down
and shake the hell out of it until we
make our own place in it.”

― Elizabeth Lowell, Remember Summer

Father’s Day: “it matters who I remember he was”

 

 

It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.

Artists with serious aspirations need to be left alone to follow the course of their own imagination.

Studio Couch, mixed media on paper, copyright 2018, D. Moorezart, all rights reserved.

In my studio the onlooking “studio couch” continually asks me to step back, take a break and see what’s happened so far. Not to fall down a rabbit hole and get distorted in purpose.

To reflect, to consider, to put on another pair of eyes for a while. Sit a spell.
