above: The last animal product that I have eaten in two weeks. This my friends wasn’t even that delicious. I have made it many times before, sweet simmered venison, peppers, and onions. Usually I spoon it over some freshly steamed rice and chow down but this was the last meal before my juice fast and detox and I was so turned off. The fast went well-it had its ups and downs -overall it has made me disinterested in any animal products and I have been super interested in this woman, Ani Phyo. I am now a vegan who is leaning towards raw. I have been vegetarian before and I kind of expected it to happen again. For the past year or so I have made many half hearted attempts but now I am sticking to it. Hopefully this raw food will fuel my creativity.
I worked on some watercolor sketches today of my next fox piece. Nothing worth showing. Then, minutes ago I mounted my first staghorn fern in sphagnum moss on a piece of barn timber that I picked up on Ryan’s property.
I have two more to mount – I’ve been wanting one ever since the first time I went to the conservatory. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow. I love that place:)
