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.

they can show me in the world.” ~ Samuel Johnson

One of my students, when she learned that I paint dogs, lent me a photo of Nina, her Siberian Husky. She wasn't commissioning me; she was just showing off her dog. I knew right away that I had to paint her. I've always thought Siberian Huskies were beautiful and I've never met one I didn't like. It was a fun experience to paint her, the latest in my series of breed paintings. This one is on sale (it sold) in my Etsy shop.

Oh...lest anyone think I'm a meanie, I'll be giving a print of the painting to my student on the first day of school in September. [Thanks, Christy!!]
