Last year I entered the first ever Mutt Lynch Winery/Dog Art Today wine label contest, with Barcchus. I made it to the Top Ten, and had a lot of fun through the experience. Interestingly, this year, there are two submissions that follow the same theme: a parody of Bacchus, the god of wine.
After last year, I couldn't wait to enter again. The wine involved this year is called a "Muttitage," so I found it only fitting to use an image of a mutt, or as I like to refer to them, a magnificent mixed breed, for my label submission. The most striking mutt in my repertoire is Penny. I think she would look sweet on a wine label. If you agree, please take a moment to visit Dog Art Today, admire the seventy-seven(!) entries, and vote for mine, which is #54. I would love to make it to the Top Ten again, with your help. Thanks!!
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.
