RUSTIC BUILDING SERIES
Dalmane of Dalmane ART Shepherd is a Multi-Media Artist from the Rocky Mountain House area. She has been influenced by the Central Alberta ranching and farming community and its history since she was a child. The Rustic building Series consist of authentic remains of family homes, barns, sheds and building structures. Each painting has a story to tell and memories that express the souls of their past. She believes some of these buildings may not last much longer and by replicating them their history will not be forgotten.
Story #1: Oras, Alberta
The Owchar Family Farm holds special memories for Dalmane as her father was born in the house back in 1938.
The farm is still in the family and the house still stands, but maybe not for long.
Dalmane spent many years wandering the quarter section with the farm dogs Corky and Buffy and riding her and her family’s horses.
Family rumours say that the house was haunted, and on more than one occasion Dalmane recalls sleeping beside her Grandmother and hearing strange noises in the night.
