I designed these last year and was SO excited about them....but I was a little late with All Things Christmas, due to my goal of finishing my wedding thank-you notes by the end of the year. I got the cards back from the printer and, due to the late date, all I could do was put them in a box until this year. I was going to use them as my personal Christmas cards, but now I have my own dog (not a Yorkie). I already designed awesome (if I do say so myself) holiday cards featuring Rosie, which I will share soon...so that means I have lots of these Yorkie cards to sell. You can snag a set for yourself in my Etsy shop.
As for my 30 in 30 project, Phase 1 is almost over. Including today, there are 4 days left in the month. But I have 6 dogs left to draw. It's a rainy Sunday so I'll draw 2 today, then I'll draw 2 tomorrow, then I'll finish the month as I began it–with a dog a day—for the last two days. Stay tuned!
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.
