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

Bonaparte and Trigger

Growing up, I had a neighbor with a Poodle named Napoleon. So it was a bit trippy for me, many years later, to paint a Poodle named Bonaparte. He and his brother Trigger were commissioned by my friend Mike, who ordered Maddie and then came back for more. I'm happy to be a little elf for Mike, as he is giving all three paintings as Christmas gifts. Thank you, Mike, for your continued support of my work! I hope your friends and parents are happy with their paintings!

Currently on the easel: a Sheltie named Casey. And off the easel I'm working on a pastel of a Sheltie mix named Gracie. Casey and Gracie. I love to rhyme!
