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.

This is the second of my completed holiday commissions this year. The first one has yet to be posted. I'm keeping it a secret until after Christmas, to ensure I don't ruin the surprise for the recipient.

This is Maggy, a beautiful Lhasa Apso that resides in Doggie Heaven. Her mom, Rose, is a co-worker of mine. Rose commissioned this portrait as a Christmas gift for her husband. But as I handed her the portrait today, she informed me that she won't be able to wait until Christmas to give it to her hubby! Thank you, Rose, for the commission. I'm honored to create this portrait of Maggy for you and Jim. Enjoy!
