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

30 in 30: Phase 2 Week 3: Vinny
Two posts ago I presented the portrait of Rosie done by Michelle Besedic, who contacted me for a pet portrait trade. Well here is my portrait of her Labradoodle, Vinny. How cute is that face? I just want to smooch it!

Thanks, Michelle, for a fun art trade experience. I loved painting Vinny....and I can't wait to hang the portrait of Rosie!

Coming soon to a blog near you: several dogs, including a Poodle, a Schnauzer, a Bulldog, a Goldendoodle and two Cairn Terriers! Whew! Despite that long list, I'm still accepting holiday commissions, but not for much longer...
