Clear Blue Day by Veronica Foreman

Medium: acrylic paint & permeant markers
Dimensions: 2 canvas each 20 x 10 inches

Artist Statement: The title of the piece is called a clear blue day because growing up I remember adults always looking at the weather channel to see how the day would be. If the day was clear and blue, it meant we were having a “good day.”  So, to my mind, a good day would be when all skin colors would be treated equally. The reference of the American flag over the face of a brown person indicates that they are American and proud to be. On a clear blue day, a person can wear a hoodie and eat a bag of skittles with no worries about will they live to see tomorrow. Although on a clear blue day everything would be “perfect” there would still be a separation and that is depicted in the separation space between the two canvases.

Artist Connection to the theme: Manifesting Beloved Community means to me that communities can feel safe and loved by all kinds. The respect of all cultures will not determine one's life to live on the land we call earth. This piece connects to the title because our babies should be loved and wear hoodies for comfort not to be associated as a criminal for their attire. This piece also states in a beloved community our babies would be proud and not afraid to wear a hoodie. Please note I am a proud mother of two young teenagers and every day my children leave the house with their favorite comfortable hoodie on I am afraid I pray we can live in a beloved community.
