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.

“I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings
they can show me in the world.” ~ Samuel Johnson

30 in 30: Phase 1 Week 1...Check!

Click on the image for a better look.
I spent a bit of time (almost) every day, over the last week, drawing. It was gorgeous fall-ish weather here at the Jersey shore, so I was able to do my sketches at the beach, lake, or park. Some were done in my living room. Regardless of the location, it was great to eek out some creative time every day. I can already tell my drawing speed is improving, which was not really a goal of this project, but it's certainly a nice bonus. Week 2 will be a bit more challenging, as I'm gearing up for the new school year. Here goes...

This week's pooches: Meatball the Pit Bull, Gracie the Sheltie/Golden mix, Bosco the Boston Terrier, Ceili the Chihuahua mix, Wesley the Westie, Shrimp the Lhasa Apso, and Machen the Doberman.
