not-so-Still Life

Mentally organizing ingredients for today's juice, I realized I could create a cute face with the raw fruits and veggies before they are liquified.  This made me think of Guiseppe Arcimboldo's thematic veggie and fruit still life paintings.

How ironic that the raw potential, left arranged and uneaten, may be called "still life", but as soon as they're consumed, the vegetables and fruits transform into a life force that allows energy, action and healing!

Action Juice:
1/4 cantaloupe, with rind
1 large carrot
1 cucumber, peeled
1 clementine
5 strawberries
3 branches raw kale
