Remember Bill Alexander, the painter who had a show on public television? His most famous phrase was "Almighty White." Every single time I squeeze white paint onto my palette I hear his voice saying it in my head. White truly is a magical color to paint with. And up until just recently, I only extolled the virtues of white paint in oil-from-the-tube form. But as Kevin and I renovate our entire house (going on 5 months now), I'm becoming a huge fan of white semi-gloss latex paint. It hides a multitude of sins on baseboards and door jams. White really *is* almighty, Bill!
And speaking of white, I'm just finishing up a painting of two Bichons who are named after the most glorious white there is: snow! Flurry and Frosty will be posted soon!
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.
