food for thought

This is the food part. We sat down to have hors d'oeuvres with our drinks before dinner and they ended up as dinner. I turned off the grill and decided to let the flank steak marinate till tomorrow or Monday. What do we have here? Baba ganouj - homemade; grilled, marinated peppers, onions, zucchini (homemade), English water crackers with divine Humbolt Fog artisinal goat cheese, and plebeian vinegar and salt kettle chips with Paul Newman's salsa. The drinks are on the side, along with tomorrow's NY Times - most of which gets delivered and read on Saturday. The thought part is a bit more challenging. I have finished this piece, which is the last of a series. But the name I have for it is unwieldy. So I am throwing it out to you. What does it say to you? And then there is the piece I am revisiting. Printed about a year ago, it sits, waiting for the next step. It has been up on this page before, but I am looking at it differently this time. This always makes me think of what a stupid question it is when somebody asks "how long did it take you?" The color in this image doesn't look quite right to me, but it's close enough. Not the point. I have my crit group meeting on Monday and don't have anything new to bring. Tommorrow is spoken for. Do I still have time to do something tonight? Time, yes. Energy, I'm not sure.

It's hard to put a name on something when you don't know what it's about, but it looks like a 'Moment Frozen in Time' to me. Maybe the words on it would give you a clue as to what it wants for a name.
The tile looking piece, makes me think of subway walls, Simon & Garfunkle's "Sounds of Silence", one of my all time favorite songs. How about some graffiti? Ticket stubs? Gum or candy wrappers?Toilet tissue, Clean of course!!!
Or how about taking each "tile" cutting them out, making multiple tiles(each it's own little quilt), individuals, & mount them on to a background?

Love that piece that you are trying to rename. The colours are very appealing. To me, it looks like "Fading Memories".

"Together" it says to me.

"Deja Vu", the couple seem to have been there many times. Long narrow strips remind me of Obiturary notices, adding to the feeling of being immortalized in time. Earthy colors of background complete the concept of burial, death, and renewal. Haven't I been here before? Been there, seen that, lets do it again.
