If you know me, you know that I REALLY don't like cats. Don't hate me; I have my reasons. I am an animal lover and a vegetarian. I just don't like cats. Most artists are cat people, but I am not.
However, as a thank-you to my friend Brad who gave me his old easel, I painted his cat, Moo. Moo is now in feline heaven. Despite my lack of cat love, I was happy and honored to paint Moo for Brad and his wife Alicia.
Through this process, I've come to appreciate the aesthetic beauty of cats. So I'd paint one again, certainly. I just don't want any cats near me. Achoo.
WOOF! Thank you for visiting i heart dogs studio, the home of pet portraits lovingly painted by me, Christine Humphries Throckmorton. Since 2007, I have created custom pet portraits, prints, cards, and more, all featuring lovable canines (and the occasional feline). Scroll down, take a look around, click away. You'll see a wide variety of pet portraits, and get to know a bit about the girl behind the canvas.
PLEASE NOTE: Now that I have a toddler, I am no longer accepting commissions. For now, I am shelving the paintbrushes and just enjoying being MOM. I have a variety of original paintings, prints, and cards available in my shop, however, and there is a lot of dog art to peruse in the pages of this here blog. Enjoy.
