Description A colorful and unusual still life featuring the infamous Habanero chili pepper and a decorative oil bottle. I wanted to pay homage to the fiery intensity of the subject.Habaneros are among the hottest chili peppers with a Scoville rating of 100,000-350,000. If you can get past the heat you will find that the Habanero has a fruity, citrus-like flavor. This pepper is a very popular ingredient in hot sauce, spicy foods and sometimes tequila. The largest producer of the pepper is Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Mexicois also the largest consumer of the habanero. Habanero chilies accompany most dishes in the Yucatan either as a salsa or as whole peppers.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
