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

30/30 Week 21: Arthur

Argyle for Arthur!
This Beagle is the canine son of my friend Pete. Pete, an incredible graphic designer/illustrator, was my classmate in college. One of the most entertaining folks in my major. Within minutes of me sending this proof to Pete, he got back to me, saying how much he liked the portrait. Thanks, Pete! You just made my day.

With Arthur done, I have 9 more portraits to complete in this seemingly never-ending project. Getting there, getting there. Now that I'm in my second trimester, I hope to crank out artwork at a much faster pace.

Next on the easel: Gordon, the Boston Terrier and Frankie, the Münsterländer.

Hope you are staying cool during these hot summer days,
