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

More pretty paper!

30/30 Week 3: Bella

The last portrait I posted featured funky paper from Nepal. This portrait, of a Maltese named Bella, includes classic Florentine paper from Italy. Guess what? While painting this dog, not once did I complain to myself about acrylics. Maybe they are growing on me? Hmm...

UPDATE: This painting is now for sale, right here.
