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

Christmas commission 2 of 2

My last commissioned pet portrait. Ever? Probably. Maybe not. Who knows. Definitely for a long, long while. I'm happy that the last one features such a handsome dog. This is Chase, an American Coonhound/Labrador Retriever mix. Thanks, Tom, for providing me my final commission. I hope your wife loves the portrait!


It was a bit of a rush to finish the last few paintings prior to Christmas. But I did it. As for the four remaining partially-done canvases I have, I plan to finish them soon, but leisurely. I'd like to complete one during my (gloriously long) holiday break, and tackle the other three here-and-there during my lunch breaks at work and/or during my daughter's naps. And when they are all completed, I plan to make a photo book commemorating seven years, 133 pet portraits, and this blog. Feelin' good!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
