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

Snowed in and burned out

We got hit with a whole lotta snow this weekend! Rosie loves to run and play in it, but every time she comes back inside, she has giant snowballs attached to her fur. And they are not easy to remove! They look so funny, I just had to post a picture.

I worked out a master plan for art production that was supposed to mean I'd be done on the 18th of December and able to take a nice break until mid-January. Well, that was a bit ambitious. The only way I'd accomplish that was if I cloned myself. I have three portraits left that I'd like to get done before the holiday. It's just really hard to find the time and/or motivation.

I'm just going to say it: I'm burnt. To a crisp.

The only thing getting my art groove back right now is receiving feedback from recent paintings that were gifted to people. A slew of eloquent, sweet, kind words flooded my In box yesterday, and it always makes me happy to hear that clients and portrait recipients are pleased. Warms my heart like hot apple cider!
