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'm so glad summer is here. Last summer I created many portraits for wonderful clients and I can't wait to have another productive season this summer. To kick it off, I'm offering a 15% discount on any commissioned portrait ordered in the month of July. Just send me an e-mail with "July Special" in the subject line to get the process started.
The lovely spokesmodel for this advertisement is Molly, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier that lives across the street. Isn't she cute? She'll get her wish one of these days.
