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.

No spoilers here!

I'd love to post my recently-finished paintings, but I don't want to spoil any surprises! Of the five holiday commissions I took on this year, four are complete. I was able to post Maggy, because my client decided she couldn't wait until Christmas to give her husband the portrait. The others must stay under wraps until after the holiday. I've got one more to do, and hope to complete it by this Saturday. Operation Get All Artwork Done Before Baby Arrives is going slowly, but surely (I suppose).

So what's a girl to post, when she can't post any recent work? How about the photos I took of George Rodrigue's studio in New Orleans? I walked by after it was closed, so I could only point my camera in through the glass windows. On my next trip to NOLA, I will certainly go in and show some love for the blue dog and a very prolific artist.
