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

My latest dog portrait was commissioned by Kim, one of my very best friends. This is Taitan, a gorgeous Akita that belongs to Kim's parents. This portrait will be their Christmas present. I couldn't be happier to do this for Kim and Brian; I've been friends with them for a gazillion years, and I love Kim's entire family. I hope Mr. and Mrs. Larsen like it!
Kim is a mommy to her own Akita, Bo. (And soon Kim will be a mommy to a human!) Thanks, Kim and Brian! Merry Christmas to you both and to the entire Larsen clan!
