A few months ago, my friend Dina and I visited Jen and her new baby. Dina spent the afternoon cooing at the baby, while I spent the afternoon photographing the dog. Ha ha ha. Quite telling!! Anyway, the photos inspired this painting. Rendering the cute Pottery Barn rug from Jen's living room took a loooong time.
I just saw Jen yesterday and casually blurted out, "I painted your dog"....turns out, she was planning on commissioning me anyway. Ah, serendipity! So this painting will be sold soon. I hope you like it, Jen!!
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.
