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.

We go back a long way, you and I. As long as I've used a computer, I've used a Mac. I fell in love with you in college when I was a graphic design student. I got to know you very well as a professional designer. I remained faithful to you in graduate school. And now I sing your praises to my students, as I teach Graphic Design to teenagers. Do you know what that means for you? Future customers! And how do you repay me, Apple? How? HOW?!? By driving me crazy and making me go broke, that's how! Hmmph! Why do you make a power cord that has nifty little pieces that pop up for the purpose of wrapping the cord around, when the result of wrapping the cord around said nifty pieces causes MAJOR DAMAGE?!? For the second time, my power cord has practically caught fire. Look at those pictures! The smell was atrocious, and I'm lucky my studio didn't go up in flames. And to make matters worse, it cost me $80 each time to replace the power cords. I'm not happy with you right now, Apple. Not happy at all. You owe me. There is a class action law suit regarding this very issue. But I don't have time for all the legal mumbo-jumbo, Apple. I'm a busy gal. Make a better power cord.
That was my rant. On a better note...
My wedding is less than a month away! Oh my gosh! I'm trying to enjoy the last-minute preparations and not let the stress get the better of me.
I'm also thrilled to have 2 new clients, and between them 3 paintings of 4 dogs! I can't wait to post them. I'll be a painting fool before my wedding and honeymoon.
