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.

Wow. I certainly took a lengthy hiatus from blogging! October was a crazy month for me and I have 20 un-listened-to voicemails to prove it! The month started with a weekend-long craft show (which I still need to discuss), then the following weekend I ran my first 5k, then two weeks later I became an aunt for the first time! I'll do a post about all these events soon. But for now...
Ha ha ha. I couldn't resist. Who doesn't picture Brando when you hear/read the name "Stella"? This is my latest portrait, commissioned by my friend Mark. Stella is a brindle Boxer; what a beautiful dog! This painting is a birthday present for Mark's wife Debbie. I hope she likes it!.....Thank you, Mark, for your support!
In the works: a portrait of a cat named Flash.
