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

I'm so glad summer is here. My first full summer as a wife, first summer in my newly-renovated house, and first summer as a doggie mom. It promises to be a fun summer, and hopefully an art-filled one as well!
To kick it off, I'm offering a 20% discount on any portrait commissioned between now and the end of AUGUST. Just send me an e-mail with "SUMMER SPECIAL" in the subject line to get the process started. To take advantage of the discount, your order and deposit must be placed before September 1st.
The lovely spokesmodel for this advertisement is Tessa, a Mastiff we met at puppy class (yes, she is a puppy-a very BIG puppy!). Isn't she cute? She'll get her wish one of these days.
Happy Summer!
