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.

“I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings
they can show me in the world.” ~ Samuel Johnson

My Most Wanted Breeds


I compiled a list of dog breeds I have yet to paint...and really want to. Any time I get a commission* that allows me to cross one of these breeds off my list, I will give the client a 15% "Most Wanted" discount.

My 30 Most Wanted Breeds, in no particular order:
As each breed gets commissioned (or otherwise painted), I will cross it out. And maybe add another to the list!
  • GERMAN SHEPHERD
  • GREAT DANE (preferably Harlequin)
  • DALMATIAN
  • CORGI
  • PAPILLON
  • FRENCH BULLDOG
  • AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD (preferably Merle)
  • IRISH SETTER
  • ENGLISH SETTER
  • AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG (BLUE HEELER)
  • SCOTTISH TERRIER
  • GREYHOUND
  • JACK RUSSELL
  • BLOODHOUND
  • BRIARD
  • PORTUGESE WATER DOG
  • BULL TERRIER
  • CHINESE CRESTED
  • SHAR-PEI
  • CHOW CHOW
  • NEWFOUNDLAND
  • AIREDALE
  • HAVANESE
  • GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER
  • SHIBA INU
  • FOX TERRIER
  • BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG
  • BEDLINGTON TERRIER
  • BORZOI
  • CLUMBER SPANIEL
  • SCHIPPERKE
*Discount does not apply if the breed is used as part of my 30-in-30 project. Those paintings are drastically discounted already. Discount is for commissions only.
