Showing Prairiescapes of Winnipegosis
For this series of oil paintings Rebecca Haverluck delves into her roots in rural Manitoba, and her personal history in and around Winnipegosis, MB.
Prairiescapes of Winnipegosis brings the viewer to a place of wide open blue skies, broken-down barns, wild grasses and serene lakes.
Taking these images out of time and mixing reality with memories to create a visual experience for the viewer, I hope to translate some aspect of how I felt standing in front of these intimate landscapes.
