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

Thank you to everyone who voted for Barcchus, my wine label submission. Thanks to wonderful friends, family, and clients (and the power of Facebook), I made it to the Top Ten, which was the goal. The rest is up to the judges. There are some gorgeous submissions keeping mine company. Good luck to all! If I don't win, I will definitely participate next year; what a fun art competition!
Oh, and how cute is my dog? I love this picture!!
