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

When I should have been writing wedding thank-you notes, I designed my holiday card for 2008 instead. It features a Yorkie from one of my paintings popping her sweet head out of a wrapped box. What you see here is the front of the card, and the inside is blank. These guys are currently being printed. When I get them in my hands I will most likely list a few sets in my Etsy shop. The rest I will send to family and friends (after I take care of the wedding thank-yous, of course).
[UPDATE: The cards arrived too late to sell for this holiday season. However, I'm so happy with how they turned out, I will definitely reserve some of them to sell next Christmas!]
And I relisted last year's holiday cards. I was pleasantly surprised at how many sets sold last year, and I just sold another one a few days ago. I have two sets left, in my Etsy shop.
