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 Sun, the most powerful and striking of the paintings in this series. To its striking color, we must add its large size, since with 1.90 centimeters in diameter, it is a painting that does not go unnoticed and that with its half smile and its fixed and penetrating gaze dominates any place where it is exposed. The Sun and the planet Jupiter are the only two paintings in this series that have a frontal look. This is because in addition to being the two largest celestial bodies in our solar system, Jupiter has the chemical characteristics to be a sun, but not being so massive has not generated the reaction to become a star.

The Sun (from the Latin sol, solis, "god Sol invictus" or "sun", Helios in Greek mythology, in turn from the Proto-Indo-European root sauel-, "to shine") is a G-type star of the main sequence and luminosity class V that is located in the center of the solar system and constitutes the largest source of electromagnetic radiation of this planetary system. It is an almost perfect sphere of plasma, with an internal convective motion that generates a magnetic field through a dynamo process. About three-quarters of the Sun's mass consists of hydrogen; the rest is mainly helium, with much smaller amounts of elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon and iron.

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.
