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 8: Penny

Mutts are beautiful, aren't they? This one sure is! Meet Penny, a mystery mixed breed that spends a lot of time on a farm. The photo of Penny was submitted by my lovely friend Eileen, whom I've known since freshman year in high school. Eileen contributed a whopping five photos to my 30 in 30 project. She actually gave me a ton of photos of at least seven dogs, but I chose to paint five. I'm also working on a commission for her! Thank you, Eileen, for your generous support of my work, and for your friendship! I hope you like all of the paintings as they are revealed to you!
