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

Hooray! My first dog portrait of 2008. After a bit of hiatus due to getting engaged, I'm back in the saddle. It feels good to be painting dogs again. This is Maxx, a beautiful Chocolate Lab. I was commissioned by Erin to paint Maxx for her mom. Thank you, Erin. I hope your mom enjoys the portrait!
I will soon be posting my little dog silhouettes. I'm excited about them. Until then, I'm off to pack for my trip to Greece.....Enjoy the weekend!
(Happy belated birthday, Linda!)
