This is a good day. I woke up to an Etsy order (always a good start to the day) AND my new dog wisdom cards are today's feature on Moira McLaughlin's awesome blog Dog Art Today. [THANKS, MOIRA! YOU ROCK!] I have been very fortunate to "meet" (in the cyber sense) some wonderful artists/dog lovers since I've started this here little business of mine. They have been a huge inspiration and help to me; I'm so grateful.
I'm really proud of these cards and also proud that I've sold a quite a few. I hope that trend continues! A few months ago I did a post in which I featured one of these cards and offered my take on the card's quote. I think I'll do that again. With Mr. Pug.
"The pug is living proof that God has a sense of humor."
Seriously...have you ever encountered a pug without laughing, or at least smiling? No. It's impossible! One of my next projects coming up is a portrait of two pugs. They are cute sisters who will be a pleasure to paint!
Thank you again, Moira, for the feature today!
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.
