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 really wanted to finish a painting today. REALLY. But with all that I had going on, it just couldn't happen. I had my scrapbooking supplies out so I decided to make some cards. The one pictured here features one of my portraits of Elwood the Chihuahua. I made it to thank and congratulate the chef of one of my favorite restaurants, The Tortilla Press. Kevin and I attended their most recent Farm to Fork dinner event, for which the restaurant teams up with a local farm and creates a menu that highlights the fresh produce that is in season. It was an amazing meal, and the chef was very accommodating to me and the other vegetarians. I could eat Mexican food every day.
Anyway, I enjoy making my own cards. I think I'm only going to send homemade cards from now on!
I'm currently working on two commissions: a pit bull mix and the cutest Yorkie you've ever seen in your life!
