I'm proud to announce that two of my dog portraits were accepted into a juried art exhibition!
Just when I was feeling bummed over the fact that Kali and Brackett didn't sell, someone informed me of an upcoming local art exhibit. I usually don't have originals on hand, so having these two paintings available worked in my favor. Kali and Brackett got framed and dropped off, with high hopes of being accepted into the show. And they were! This is the first time I've submitted pet portraiture to an art show; hopefully it won't be the last. The exhibit, called "From a Woman's Perspective," showcases and celebrates female artists in my county. I'm honored to be included!
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.
