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 finally got to paint a German Shepherd! I recently made a list of 30 breeds I really want to paint, but haven't yet. Shortly after I posted the list, I heard from Julie. She soon became the first client to take advantage of my "Most Wanted Breeds" discount. And I was honored to paint her gorgeous German Shepherd, Esau. Julie contacted me right before my month-long hiatus from painting, and was incredibly patient as I took a much-needed break. When I finally finished the portrait, she said it was worth the wait. I am fortunate to have such sweet clients. Thank you, Julie! I hope you and your husband enjoy the portrait!

If you are thinking about commissioning a pet portrait, be sure to check out my Most Wanted Breed list. You just might save some money!
