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

Black, white and blue, part 2

30/30 Week 23: Gordon
I'm no stranger to the Boston Terrier. I've created three Boston portraits, each in a different medium (oil, mosaic, and watercolor/colored pencil). The thing is, all three have been of the same Boston: my budddy Bosco. This time, my subject is Gordon. Gordon's mom, Kathy, is an artist herself and a very nice person. Thanks, Kathy, for participating in my 30 Dogs project!

This portrait, done in pastel, is the second-to-last black dog in this 30 Dogs series. So many black dogs! Black dogs are my favorite to paint. I've always wanted a black dog, especially since I read they are the least likely to be adopted.

Coming soon: a dog in the grass, and a dog next to flowers!
