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

I was looking through iPhoto for a fun dog photo and came across this project from a former student of mine. At the end of the school year, we always do a lighthearted Photoshop project. Most years I offer the option of creating an animal hybrid.
The one you see here was done by a young lady named Brooke. She was awesome in my class. I wonder if my students think they'll get extra credit for including a dog image in their work. Hmm...
I've got two pet portraits that are thiiiis close to being finished. I hope to post both tomorrow.
