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

This is the Jefferson Memorial. I visited it last night and it was illuminated, just like in this picture. This is where I GOT ENGAGED!!!!!!! Makes sense considering Kevin is a history teacher.
A 2 year crush became an 8 year friendship, then a 5 year courtship. And now we're engaged!
Yesterday was about history (and a lifelong dream coming true). Today is about art. I'm off to the National Gallery of Art to see the Edward Hopper exhibit. I think I'm going to float instead of walk....
