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

And with this, I am done!

30 in 30 Phase 2 Week 30: Casey
I saved the most challenging for last, it seems. This little painting of a Beagle took me a loooooong time. It was a challenge because, well, acrylics and I aren't friends. Also, for the first time, I incorporated collage into a painting. I'm happy with how the portrait turned out, and proud to conclude my 30-in-30 project with it. Casey the Beagle belongs to Donna, a fellow Graphic Design major in college. Thank you, Donna, for contributing to my project!

I have been reflecting a lot on this self-imposed artistic challenge called "30 Dogs in 30 Days/Weeks." I will share my thoughts soon. I've also been asked to be a guest blogger on one of my favorite dog art blogs. The topic is none other than my (now complete!) 30-in-30 project, so there will be a lot of wrap-up in the near future. For now, I think I'm going to crack open a celebratory Corona Light and pat myself on the back!
