Charleston Single House Oil Painting

in New Artwork .

Oh, Charleston. You had me at "hello". I've lived in Charleston for over 14 years now and the beauty and charm of its architecture has never faded. So naturally when I was commissioned to paint this Charleston single house, I was delighted. I adore painting what is close to my heart. This piece was a Christmas present for a clients parents who recently bought a home in Charleston. Of course it was a surprise so I was unable to share the process on social media for fear the new recipients might stumble upon and recognize their lovely abode. The holidays have come and gone and I can now share..

Happy New Year 2019!

in Art Studio .

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it’s 2019?! I suppose I say this every new year. I can’t believe it's the year *blank*. But seriously, I can’t. 2018 was quite a year. Like all past years, it had its ups and downs but overall it was a great year! However, the feeling I have about 2019 is unlike any other. This is going to be a great year! I can feel the energy all around me! Have you written out your goals and aspirations? When they're down on paper it makes them that much more real and maybe even attainable. One of my goals this year is to be fearless! I will not let doubt stand in the..

New Monokini Series just Launched!

in New Artwork .

Bikini (n): a very brief two-piece swimsuit for women. Mono (adj): a monochromic picture, i.e. picture executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color. Monokini (n): A mixed media painting series by Rebecca Hinson where most of the image is in black and white except for the one piece (and sometimes 2 piece) bathing suit. Media includes gouache, sumi ink, pencil, gold leaf, and acrylic on thick watercolor paper. Ok, so that last one is MY definition of a monokini. A monokini is a real thing though. These days it’s generally thought of as a one piece women’s bathin..

Custom Puppy Portrait

in New Artwork .

Dog gone it, I love animals! I'll scream it on the rooftops! My entire life I've been an animal lover. Dogs, cats, horses, pigs, chickens, and yes, even the commonly feared snake. I really do adore them all. So naturally painting animals is one of my passions and specialities. Some of my favorite projects have been capturing someones furry (or scaly. I said I like snakes) companion. This little nugget is Ozzie the aussie doodle. Aussie likes long walks at sunset, belly rubs, and making new friends. Does your furry friend need they own portrait as well? Commission me to paint them as a wh..

My Best Friends Wedding

in Art Exhibits & Events, New Artwork .

Working on wedding art is one of my favorites! The client (bride) usually knows exactly what she wants and I just help bring it to life. When my best friend and roommate for almost 6 years, Emily, got engaged, I was thrilled (and hoping) she wanted me to do the art! Perhaps you already guessed it, it's a beach wedding. Even more exciting is the reception is at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. How cool is that!? We started with the wedding logo that ties in the two main colors, firecracker coral and a light green. The wedding itself will take place in Beaufort, not far from ..

May Cover Art for Skirt Magazine

in New Artwork .

Happy May, the month that's all about moms! Naturally, the theme for this month's skirt! magazine is just that, motherhood. While I myself am not a mother, I am blessed to have an amazing mom of my own and 2 wonderful grandmothers. This illustration was inspired by one of my grandmothers, Granny, who just passed away in March on the first day of Spring. She lived a full and wonderful 92 years on this earth. I tried to incorporate a bit of her in this piece. The gladiolus in the background are from the immense gladiolus garden she grew and loved. She also had a large fruit and veggie gard..
