For three years now I've been the proud aunt to a Brittany named Georgia. This is my painting of her. Georgia is quite the princess.
Georgia doesn't know it yet, but her world is about to turn upside down. Georgia's mommy (my sister) is now expecting not one, but TWO babies! Of course I am thrilled about becoming an aunt to actual humans, but I'm worried about Georgia. My boyfriend is psyched because he loves to dogsit, and he has a pretty strong feeling we'll be asked to do that A LOT once the babies arrive.
This whole scenario will be excellent research for me, as I'm working with a friend on a children's book about this very topic.
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.
