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

My friend Jill (mommy to Bosco, my buddy) commissioned me to paint Buster. Buster, a gorgeous Boxer, was Jill's family dog that held an extra special significance for Jill's brother Rob. This painting will be Rob's Christmas present from Jill. I feel so honored to paint Buster because I've heard so many wonderful things about him. Buster is now residing in canine heaven, so I feel privileged to create a tribute to him.

Boxers are one of my favorite breeds. I've had a lot of fun running and playing with Boxers; they are gentle giants.

Thank you, Jill, for this commission and for being such a great friend and supporter of this little business of mine.
