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

Here is the latest in my series of breed paintings: a West Highland White Terrier. The original painting (it sold) and prints are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Since Linda of Abby Creek Art was so enthusiastically supportive of my card idea, I've got several dog cards in the works. I'll post them (hopefully) tomorrow. I've been having fun finding papers and trims to complement my paintings. Thanks, Linda!

The opening reception of the Biennial exhibit was wonderful. Thanks to all of you who came out for it, and to those who sent congratulations/flowers/etc. It meant a lot!
