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

I'm proud to announce eight new additions to my Dog Wisdom card collection. I now have a total of 50 Dog Wisdom cards, each with a different quote. I'm looking forward to hitting 60, at which point I'm going to have a few sets of Moo postcards made from the designs. The cool thing about Moo is that you can order a set of 60 postcards, and each one can have a different design. Pretty cool. So that's a plan for the future...but for now, I still have eight paintings to finish for my 30-in-30 project. And, masochist that I am, I'm going to do it all over again, starting in July!
Oh yeah, and I recently added a Cat Wisdom card to my shop, too!
Please don't forget to vote for my painting in the Mutt Lynch Winery/Dog Art Today contest. I'm #54. Thanks!
