This is Buster. I was commissioned by Marian to paint her beloved Labrador Retriever. Unfortunately Buster is no longer with Marian's family, but his legacy definitely lives on. When Marian told me about Buster's life, I couldn't believe all of the stories were about one dog! He certainly had a fun, never-a-dull-moment doggy life, and he brought a tremendous amount of love to his family. It was an honor to pay tribute to Buster with a portrait; it was a pleasure to get to know Buster's mommy, Marian.
Thank you, Marian. Enjoy!
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.
