Tasteful nude at art fest...

Hi everyone,I have a quick question. I am new to art fests and was wondering the etiquette on displaying women's breasts in a painting. It will be very tasteful, such as in the victorian nude attached. She will be nude from the waist up, and will be depicted as a mermaid.

Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.

We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.
