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

Wallace poses with his portrait

Over the years, I've had many lovely clients. Wallace's parents, Pat and Jack, are definitely favorites! They won a custom portrait at a charity auction. Ever since I sent them the finished portrait of Wallace, they have been back to purchase cards and prints...and most recently, I was surprised to receive this photo in my inbox. How stinkin' cute is this? Thanks, Pat and Jack! I absolutely adore this photo. And, per my policy, you will receive a complimentary pack of cards featuring Wallace's portrait!

I needed something like this to cross my path, as my motivation lately is really, really low. I'm nowhere near finished my 30 Dogs project and the ones that are finished are, for the most part, not getting purchased. Not good for an artist's confidence. I've given up trying to meet the 30 week deadline, and now I'm just sitting down to paint when I truly want to. There's no point, otherwise. All artists get into a rut from time to time. How do you get OUT of yours?
