30 dogs project has been neglected....but not forgotten. This hiatus was necessary, and soon enough I'll be able to explain why. For now, I'm thrilled to say that my summer has officially started! School is out, my three-day school-related summer gig is over, and I can now put my teacher hat on the shelf and don my pet portrait artist hat...and leave it on. Yipee! If you are one of the eleven 30 dogs participants who is patiently waiting to see the portrait of your pup, I won't let you down. I intend to finish the project in the next several weeks.
A little bit of excitement that I can share is that ten of my dog paintings were selected for a show at a local art gallery. Most of these pieces are un-purchased 30 dogs portraits. I'm calling them (only verbally) "dogs looking for a good home." They will soon be available for sale WITH frames. For now, however, they will hang for another week.
I hope you are enjoying your summer so far!
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.
