Venus and Mars

Venus and Mars


This painting was inspired by a difficult time I was going through with the relationship with my
boyfriend. There were signs showing of our relationship coming to an end and during that
time, I was encouraged to ‘paint how I feel’ by my friends and with my great interest in
planets and zodiac this is how ‘Venus and Mars’ come to be; My boyfriend is a Scorpio and
the ruling planets are Pluto and Mars. I, Libra the ruling planet is Venus.

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus (1992) is a book written by American author
and relationship counsellor John Gray. The book states that most common relationship
problems between men and women are a result of fundamental psychological differences
between the sexes, which the author exemplifies by means of its eponymous metaphor: that
men and women are from distinct planets—men from Mars and women from Venus.
The Roman gods Venus, goddess of love, and Mars, god of war.
