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

My puppy's first portrait!

I finally finished my first portrait of Rosie. I used a photo from the day we adopted her (February 1st). She looked so sweet and a little bit scared. Adorable! I plan to take a photo of her every February 1st and create a portrait from it.

I do believe that this canvas will be the ceremonious First Thing I Hang On My Newly Painted Walls. I've been ridiculously gun-shy to decorate since the renovations were completed (in NOVEMBER!) Hmm...where to hang it???

In the works I've got five dogs on three canvases: two Bassets, another Springer, and two Pugs...And I hope to throw in a mosaic project for myself. It's been way too long since I mosaic'd.
