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

Muffy and Nicky

This is Muffy the Shih Tzu and her brother, Nicky the Shih Tzu mix. They are my latest portrait commissions. Muffy has an underbite. I love underbites, in both dogs and people. My sister had one and my husband still has one. Elwood has an underbite, too. So cute.

It took a few revisions to get these cuties just right. Revisions can be tricky because of the way I apply my paint. It was definitely a learning experience for which I'm grateful.

Thank you to Geralyn for the commissions. I hope these paintings make you very happy!
