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.

This is my latest completed commission: a Pit Bull/Bull Mastiff mix named Chewie. If you look at my Dogs I've visited this summer post, you'll see the photo that inspired the painting. Mike, a good friend of ours, commissioned this portrait for his brother Ryan. I hope Ryan and his girlfriend Rachael—both really sweet people—like it. They just bought a new house, so hopefully hanging this painting in it will make them happy.....Thank you, Mike, for the commission and for being so supportive!
