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

30 in 30: Phase 2 Week 24: Sammi

Sammi the bashful Basset is the latest finished portrait in my (seemingly never-ending) 30-in-30 project. The portrait was purchased by my friend Jodi, as a gift to her mom, who is also Sammi's mom. Last year Jodi commissioned me to paint two other Bassets as a gift for her dad. I love a breed-loyal family! Thank you, Jodi, for your continued business! I'm honored that you've chosen me to create such special gifts for your parents.

With Sammi in the "DONE" column, I have six more portraits to finish before I can call the entire project done....and take a much-needed break from painting!
