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

A gift for a fellow blogger
(who doesn't know I exist)

I just completed eight glitter dog silhouettes. Six will be for sale, and the two pictured here will soon be shipped to a person whom I admire. A sort of thank-you for her blog musings, which I find very inspiring. This person has two dogs, and celebrates them with lots and LOTS of photographs. Do you recognize these dogs by their profile? Can you guess the blogger to whom they belong?

{UPDATE (1/3/12): This blogger's stock just rose with me. Big time. Today I got a thank-you note in the mail for the portraits I sent. Little gestures like that mean so much. She's famous AND gracious.}

The other six glitter silhouettes will be posted soon. For now, I'll reveal the breeds: Basset Hound, Beagle, Chihuahua, Dalmatian, Schnauzer, and Siberian Husky. In pretty, sparkly colors. Stay tuned!
