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 received devastating news yesterday. My friend Lisa had to put down Fisher, her sweet Weimaraner. Fisher was the first dog I ever painted and therefore I consider him the dog that started i heart dogs studio. As I mentioned in my first post about him, I fell in love with Fisher at first sight. He made me an instant fan of the Weim breed. He was a fantastic dog and a beloved member of his family. My thoughts and prayers are with the Millers during this difficult time. I feel lucky to have known Fisher and I will always consider him to be the mascot of my little business.
