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 Week 25: Nola

What do you get when you mix a Weimaraner with a Chocolate Lab? A gorgeous dog, that's what! Look at that smile! This pretty lady was named after New Orleans, LouisianA. I visited New Orleans for the first time in April, and loved it! Can't wait to go back.

I wanted to use one of the three classic Mardi Gras colors for the background. Since I've always loved brown and purple together, it was an easy decision.

Thank you, Jennifer, for contributing to my project. I hope you like the portrait!
