Nips

It's International Women’s Day so to celebrate I'm baring it all! 🙂 For the first time ever I'm offering my painting "Nips" as a limited edition print for 48 hours! 🖼⏰ It will only be up from today until midnight March 10th PST. ⏳✨  I will be donating a portion of the sales to both the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. 💖Go to store.camilladerrico.com/produ… grab yours! 😘💕 

I created her in 2013, in response to years of negative criticism I received for depicting the nude female body in my artwork. 🙎 "Nips" was my way of saying that being offended by painted breasts is as ridiculous as breasts lactating rainbows.🌈✨ North America often misconstrues nudity for sexuality, a belief I do not share. 🙅🏻 I grew up surrounded by European art culture through my Italian heritage and learned to appreciate how beautiful life and the human form can be whether that's male and female, we are equal! 💞 So I’m sharing my contribution to Women's Day as not just a female artist, or as a woman, but as a person who truly believes we must stand together in support of each other to reach equality and harmony. 🙌🙋It's time to free the nipple people, appreciate art for arts sake and see women and men as equals!😊❤ 💖

No, THANK YOU! You are so sweet and it makes my day reading this. I really appreciate your support and it means the world to me that you like my work. Especially this piece! This is something I feel strongly about and I was worried how it was going to go after posting it. Next time I hope you stop by and say hi if you're at a convention I'm attending! Thank you again ❤❤❤

Love this! And I love the message! 
It's terrible that female breasts have to be so sexualized. Male breasts are okay to show, but female breasts? Nope. The double standard needs to stop. Breasts are natural, just as how breast feeding is natural. 
The human form is beautiful, and it should be celebrated. :) 
Love all of your art. Heart

EXACTLY! You took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you so much for the positive reception of this image. I was very concerned it was going to attract negative attention because this can turn into a touchy subject for some people. Also thank you for loving my art! ❤❤❤❤

I appreciate this painting and I appreciate your description. You are very right when you say that people think that a nude body automatically equates to sexuality which is not always true whatsoever. I totally agree and I share your beliefs. The human body is very beautiful. Male or female and are both art. The nudity in your artwork is something to be seen as beautiful and artistic. People should keep their minds open. "Nips" is an awesome painting and the meaning behind it is awesome too. :D :heart:
