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

My August goal

This summer is FLYING. Scary. It's a hot summer, for sure. Pregnancy + heat + humidity = no bueno. I've been staying inside, doing stuff around the house, getting artwork done whenever possible, revamping this site (did ya notice?) and my Etsy shop, and taking lots of naps (any of you who have been pregnant will understand that one). In exactly one month, school starts again, and I have to don the hat of Art Teacher once more. So many things to accomplish this month, it's almost freaking me out. Almost.

I have a lot of goals for these 31 days of August. I will announce one right here: I want to post an entry into this here blog...wait for it...EVERY DAY. What?!? I'm not a daily poster! I'm not even a weekly poster! Has this baby zapped my sanity?

There are several reasons for this ambitious goal: some marketing related, some I-need-a-few-minutes-for-me related. This announcement doesn't count as THE post of the day; I hope to the high heavens that I can finally finish a painting today, and post that for your dog-loving pleasure. From there, who knows what I'll post every day. It should be fun interesting. Hehe. Wish me luck...And please check back daily!
