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

I have a fantastic client (and fellow Blog Buddy) named Nicolle who is a huge animal lover. She has many pets herself but has commissioned me to paint her father's three dogs. Here are two of them: Samson and Emma, a couple of gorgeous Golden Retrievers. Samson is 12 and Emma is 2. They have a 1-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel brother named Max. I'll feature Max's portrait next; for now, I just couldn't wait to post these two beauties!
