Celestial Bodies are a set of pictorial works that represent our home in the universe. Our solar system. This painting is handmade by me; Miguel Angel Aranda.

The painting of the planet venus is presented to us with a face of flirtatious and sensual gesture. A sideways look that captivates the gaze and makes it impossible not to look. Following the colors of this planet, all the shades are climbing from yellow ochre to the strong red of the lips. In its forms the outline has been exaggerated dating thus has this work of art of great sensation of movement. A very pop art looking piece ideal for a bright and modern house.

Venus is the most characteristic star in the morning and evening skies of the Earth (after the Sun and moon), and is known since prehistory. One of the oldest surviving documents from the Babylonian library of Ashurbanipal, dated to about 1600 BC. C., is a 21-year record of the appearance of Venus (which the early Babylonians called Nindaranna). The ancient Sumerians and Babylonians called Venus "Dil-bat" or "Dil-i-pat"; in the Mesopotamian city of Akkad it was the star of the mother-goddess Ishtar, and in Chinese its name is "Jīn-xīng" (金星), the planet of the metal element. Venus was considered to be the most important of the celestial bodies observed by the Maya, who called it "Chak ek" (the great star). In ancient Greece they thought that the morning and evening apparitions of Venus were of two different bodies, and they called them Hesperus when it appeared in the Western sky at sunset, and Phosphorus when it appeared in the Eastern sky at dawn.

The series of paintings of Celestial Bodies is composed of ten pictorial works that represent the stars of our solar system. From the Sun to Pluto. Its organic and irregular forms evoke the capricious sense of nature. Then, with a base of acrylics as spot colors generate different shapes and colors that best represent each planet. To finish the work I have painted a human and feminine face to each piece painting in oil the most significant and expressive features of the human being; eyes, nose and mouth. The result is a beautiful and original artistic piece that we can label within a surrealist pop of great visual and colorful impact.

The painting bears a Certificate of Authenticity printed on paper and affixed to the back of the painting.
