Nuit, the Egyptian Star Goddess by artist Stevyn Llewellyn. This is an image of my original oil painting on wood panel, depicting the goddess with Osiris and Isis in her celestial womb, available here.
Nuit, or Nut is the heavenly goddess in ancient Egyptian mythology, depicted in ancient paintings in tombs, her body is shown as the night sky, and her hands and feet reach down to touch the earth. Nuit is one of the oldest gods in the Egyptian religious pantheon. Nuit’s symbol is the ladder, whom the god Osiris uses to enter her realm. This symbol was also used to protect the dead. During the night, The heavenly bodies of the sun and moon would be swallowed by Nut, then reborn at dawn. Her body is depicted black and full of stars.

Another work in progress of my Sea series. This piece is 24″ x 48″ and rendered in acrylic. The approach to this painting is similar to my other one The Sea, where it created entirely with a pallete knife rather than a brush. this particular image took several reworkings and the intention was to evoke the force of the waves and the motion of the sea. The approach is to depict the spontaneous ephemeral movement of the ocean.
This summer, I worked on a series of plein-air paintings of the ocean from the coastlines of Oregon. Some I painted from life, others, I began as loose impressions and embellished them later with a pallate knife. The process of creating these particular series of works was immensely satisfying and ultimately liberating. For these images, I really let the paint itself take command, to let the medium be what it is, rather than trying to control it. To approach this work with pallate knives limited my ability to achieve too much realism, which was an appropriate method for the ever-changing surface of the ocean. The result was more raw, pure and energetic, which gave it a sense of immediacy and vigor, and hopefully achieved my intention of capturing the massive force of the waves.
Painting outdoors was very refreshing and I ended up taking several trips to the coast, as well as the base of mount hood to study the landscapes from life.
