Nuit, The Sky Goddess. Also known as Nut, the Egyptian goddess of stars.
This was inspired by my trip to Egypt in 2010 and being in awe of the enormous representations of this deity. The painting took about 6 months to complete in mid 2018 to January of 2019. The painting consists of a multitude of stars that form the body of the ancient goddess.

This image was inspired while climbing Mount Hood several years ago, and is loosely based on a photo I took of the mountain. This particular painting depicts the steel cliffs, beneath shimmering starlight.
An original painting by Stevyn Llewellyn, depicting Mount Hood at night. Acrylic and gel on stretched canvas. Original size 12” x 9”. Currently on exhibition. The mountains at night are purely magical when the sky is filled with stars. This was painted while camping in the Mount Hood national forest, and completed in 2015. Prints are available for purchase here.
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.
