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

30/30 Week 2: LENNOX

Continuing along my acrylic streak, here is Lennox the French Bulldog. He is one of five (or maybe six) of my 30/30 portraits in which I'm using paper. I tried that approach for the 30th portrait of the first round of 30 Dogs in 30 Days/Weeks. I liked the results so much, I decided to use more paper in this go-round. This particular circle-y paper is from Nepal. I bought it here (Paper Source's website is like a drug to me).

The next portrait in the lineup is also a white dog, also being done in acrylic, and also involving paper. Stay tuned!
