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

photo of myself as a baby with my childhood dog, Daisy. I decided to paint Daisy and here it is. This painting was commissioned by a V.I.P. client: ME! Except for one year in college, I've never hung my own artwork up in my living space. (Is that weird? I don't know.) So I figured if I'm going to finally create a piece for myself and actually display it, I'm going to be picky. I demanded that the background be the same color as the little blue boxes from a certain store I love. Hee hee.
