This beauty is dedicated to another beauty- Juanita Lillian. . The colour scheme I used was identical to the one she picked for her home. . Juanita was all things glamorous and she was a gentle spirit. The only time I ever saw her get angry was when her husband was going to skip life jackets for a boating trip with the grandchildren. She was protective ❤️ . Juanita was a city gal who grew up in D.C. during the Great Depression, met my grandfather at an infamous Army party, traveled the world with him, raised children, and she was the luckiest damn woman I’d ever met. . No really- she was lucky. She was Irish. It didn’t matter what card game she was playing- she’d win. This was especially frustrating when dementia set in and she’d show her cards and ask innocently “is this good” and we’d undoubtedly reply “yes Nanny, a royal flush is good”. 😂😍🍀 . Once, when I was little, a sibling was bullying me and I asked for her advice. She told me to “tell anyone who says mean things about me that they don’t know what they’re talking about.” I scoffed at her over-simplified advice, but I tried it. And it worked: she taught me to dismantle the power behind words and for that I’m forever grateful. . Lastly, it wasn’t until her death that I became aware of how much charitable work she’d done over her lifetime. One in particular stood out to me- she volunteered with those suffering from trauma or enduring traumatic life events. She was a class act.

Repost from @wallofyarn • These are the #snowdaymittens by @thatmetzbowergirldesigns that everyone loved! These were our January knit along and our customers used the Rauma Petter and Vamsegarn yarns. Everyone had a blast and loved how warm these mittens are! . . . #knitting #januaryknits #knitalong #feltedmittens #localyarns #localyarnshop #freeportil #winterwear #knittersofinstagram #metzbower

METZBOWER DXXXII, part of my Inheritance Period, is a very unique piece honouring my late grandfather, Lawrence. + Lawrence began his life as a farm boy from Illinois, went on to fight in WW2 and removed Nazis from occupied Norway, and he taught me to fish. + The piece has deep greens that reminded me of his Army fatigues and then golds in honour of his service medals. + He explored the world, thanks to his career in the @usarmy and he spent it with his sweetheart, Juanita, by his side. He used to tease her and sing ‘Peg O’ My Heart’ (she was Irish ). He spoke many languages, mastered many skills, had a soft spot for countries that he protected (Norway & South Korea, especially ) and he lived a long, full life. + 💚💛💚💛

This Inheritance Period piece is a nod to my grandmother, a first-generation American. The soft folds of pink hues mixed with the gentle whites are a testament to her feminine nature. + #beckmetzbower #inheritanceperiod #americanartist #contemporaryart #abstractart #metzbower #beck #art #artist #inheritance #artwork #fineart #abstractoilpainting #femaleartist #womeninthearts #shesculptswithoilpaint

Inheritance Period was an amazing moment for me to sink into my roots, ground myself, and explore the people who'd come before me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This piece is METZBOWER DXXXVI and it's a piece honouring my late great-grandmother, an immigrant from Bohemia (a region in then-Czechoslovakia ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I began the work by learning as much about her as possible and then learning about her homeland and its art forms. Bohemians were/are quite artistic and it shows in their decor, linens, and patiently painted motifs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The following is just hashtags that I G requests so this post and image is searchable. #beckmetzbower #americanartist #inheritanceperiod #contemporaryart #abstractart #immigration #bohemia #czech #slovakia #czechoslovakia #motif #beck #metzbower #womeninthearts #livingartist #femaleartist #modernart #contemporaryartist #art #artist #fineart #abstractoilpainting #oilpainting #abstractpainting

I’m grateful for @familysearch and @usnatarchives for their (well preserved ) genealogical records and free public access. . I’m not getting paid to promote them or anything- I simply used their services in conjunction with Inheritance Period and am grateful for their support in preserving U.S. records- especially immigration records. . History is lost when we forget.
