I'm 2/3 of the way through the 30 drawings! It's a busy time of year for me, so there are days when I don't get a drawing done, and then have to double-up the next day. I've also received a three-portrait commission that is a rush job, so I've had a few three-drawing days. But the faces of the pooches are so cute, I can't really complain! I'm looking forward to Phase 2 of the project, in which I turn the drawings into full-color portraits. They will be done on the new furniture I just ordered for the studio. After two years of commandeering the kitchen or dining room table to paint (and my patient husband growing not-so-patient), I'm finally moving the operation to my little studio space. Can't wait!
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.
