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 Dogs portraits, I'm not always in the mood/mindset to sit down for hours at a time and really think as I work. That's when these little guys come in. There is definitely some thinking going on (the color choices utilize everything I can remember from Color Theory class!), and a great deal of concentration (precision with glue and the paintbrush is key!), I don't have to worry about making my artwork exactly match the look of a client's dog! Plus, what girl doesn't love glitter?!
Great Scottie!, Marvelous Mastiff, and Gleaming Greyhound are now available in my shop.
