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.

For the second time, through Facebook, I was commissioned by a girl I've known since I was 6 years old. And both times, the paintings were gifts for loved ones. First there was Ozzy and now here is Peanut.
I'm so honored to create this portrait of Peanut, an adorable Maltese, for my friend Stephanie. Peanut was her family dog who recently passed. This portrait is a gift for Stephanie's mom, whom I remember very well. I hope this portrait brings Stephanie and her mom joy and comfort, as they remember their beloved Peanut.
Thank you, Stephanie, for your business; I'm flattered that you chose me to create this gift...and I can't wait to paint your gorgeous Boxers someday!
