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 9: Ceili

Here is another painting that resulted from the bounty of photos I received from my friend Eileen. This adorable Chi-poo, named Ceili (pronounced KAY-lee, as it is an Irish name), was the canine daughter of Eileen's sister. Ceili is now in doggie heaven. I love that sweet face, and how nicely she sits on the cushion. The photos were fantastic; thanks again, Eileen!

With this next group of seven dogs, I'm going a bit out of order. There are certain paintings that I know will end up being purchased for Christmas gifts, so I'm trying to get them done first. Speaking of Christmas gifts, I've got two Poodles that need finishing today so my client can give the paintings to his mom.
