Ask and ye shall receive. I put a call out to former clients/30-in-30 cutomers for photos of their dogs with the portraits I created. In return, I'm offering a free pack of notecards featuring the portrait. I happened to contact Sandra the day before she was to give birth, but she was gracious enough to e-mail me back saying, "I'll take a picture as soon as I can." The new mama lived up to her promise, sending me the above snapshot of her canine kids, Chief and Bosco. It doesn't get much better than that for a pet portrait artist.
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.
