Beverly McIver began her Dear God series of paintings upon the election of Barack Obama, to express prayers of hope or of despair or confusion. Here, she renders herself in a realistic portrait, rather than the typical fashion of being made up in black face clown makeup. She expresses a comfortability in being who she is, rather than adapting herself to fit into social or stereotypical norms.
