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.

30/30 Week 19: Howie

This little guy's mom said about Howie, "He's my best friend." She had me. This Lhasa Apso mix is a cutie patootie, and I enjoyed creating his portrait as part of my 30 Dogs project. I have a slight obsession with the paper I used for Howie's background. I want to make all sorts of things out of that paper now. Love it.

It's safe to say that my project will NOT be finished within the 30 weeks, but I'll come close. I learned a lot about myself, and had some big revelations, during the course of this go-round. I'll elaborate when it's all over. For now, I can honestly say that I'm OK with not finishing within the 30 weeks....I do look forward to being done, though. Like, REALLY look forward to being done.

Between now and then, however, I've got some traveling to do. I'm off on a little business trip. Hope to photograph some dogs while I'm there. I'm sure I'll have lots to show and tell upon my return, as it is a very colorful place I'm visiting....I'll see you on the flip-flop!

P.S. Thank you, Christine, for participating in my project. I hope you like the portrait of Howie!
