I am working on an ocean-inspired series of paintings. These are especially fun because I love working within one color palette. I chose to use shades of aqua, orange, and gold for all of these.
This one was the first of the series to be completed:

Not sure how many there will be in total. We will see!

Morana was a Slavic goddess of winter and death. She represented a long and cold winter, a winter that could bring death through famine and extreme cold, that could cause disease and massive death of the cattle. Her arrival was therefore always expected with fear and her departure was celebrated with a lot of noise and cheer.

Mokosh was one of the most popular Slavic deities and most often associated with the great Mother Goddess or Mother Earth. She was worshipped as a protector of women, force of fertility, and the ruler of death. She is a wanderer and a spinner. She weaves, spins, and holds the threads of fate.
In Slavic mythology, the Zorya Vechernaya, or Evening Star, is one of two guardian goddesses that serve the sun god Dažbog. The Morning Star opens the gates to his palace every morning for the sun-chariot's departure. At dusk, the Evening Star closes the palace gates once more after his return. Together, the two goddesses are known as the Auroras. The Auroras also guard and watch over the doomsday hound, Simargl, who is chained to the star Polaris in the constellation Ursa Minor. If the chain ever breaks, the hound will devour the constellation and the universe will end.
