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

Too much computing and not enough painting!


I'm here...barely!

Life has gotten a wee bit crazy! I've been swamped at my day job with lots of extra work. I entered two dog portraits into a juried art exhibition for the first time. I had to concoct my first dog-portrait-related Artist Statement for the exhibition entry. And everything else is a blur!

I'm so behind with painting, it is actually depressing me. I hope to clean my house like a madwoman tonight, to eliminate housework from my weekend, so that I may paint my heart out Saturday and Sunday. We'll see how that works out...
