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.

“I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings
they can show me in the world.” ~ Samuel Johnson

30 Dogs Week 26: Alfie

Lounging on a plush red couch, Alfie certainly has the life, doesn't she? This gorgeous dog belongs to Mike, whom I've known since first grade! Mike is an animal lover and advocate, so I was honored to have him contribute a fantastic photo of Alfie to my 30 Dogs project. Thank you, Mike!

This was the portrait I was going to do in mosaic tile. But I opted against it when I found out I was pregnant. Grout dust + pregnancy = not a smart move. I'm glad I went the oils route on this one, because it was fun to paint that couch. I want to sit on that couch!

I'm balancing my studio time between the last 30 Dogs pieces (only 4 left now!), holiday commissions, and portraits for ever-so-patient contest winners. In fact, it's time to fix a cup of tea and get to work at the easel.
