My little Rosie graduated from puppy school last night. She was a star pupil; we are so proud!
Kevin and I enrolled her in an 8-week training class at our local PetSmart. We highly recommend it. We learned a lot and Rosie had fun with her friends Boomer, Lucas, Spike, Sadie, Jersey, and Yankee.
I'm currently working on two paintings: a portrait of the graduate herself, and a portrait of a Basset Hound named Regis. I also have some partially-finished projects I'd like to tackle and complete. And all sorts of ideas whizzing around in my brain. Hopefully it will be a productive Spring!
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.
