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.

“I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings
they can show me in the world.” ~ Samuel Johnson

Daisy the Dachshund

I got this idea to paint the dogs from my childhood and my mother's childhood. I dug up her old photo albums and scanned several great pictures. Among them was this—a picture of me and our Dachshund named Daisy, circa 1975. My parents tell me that I used to follow her around and imitate her every move.

As for the artwork, I'm almost finished a mosaic of two English Cocker Spaniels. I can't wait to grout that baby! It will be posted soon...
