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

Black and white and round all over

30 Dogs Week 16: Mugsy
My first finished painting in a month! Here is Mugsy the Puggle. My dog has a strong affinity for Puggles, so it was fun to paint this guy. Mugsy is the 16th portrait in my 30 Dogs project. Thank you, Cassie, for contributing the adorable photo of Mugsy to my project. I hope you like the portrait!

I'm happy to say that as of right this second, I have eight canvases that are partially done. EIGHT! I'm slowly but surely getting caught up! It feels good. I've got 14 more portraits left in my project.

Coming soon: another acrylic + patterned paper piece, and a dog portrait that includes flowers!

UPDATE: This painting is for sale right here.
