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

Going out of business

As previously alluded to, I am closing up shop here. I loved painting dogs for the better part of the last seven years; but after the birth of a child, the death of a parent, and turning 40, my artistic desires are steering me in a different direction than dogs.

I have one portrait to fix, which is Schultz. And one canvas to finish, which is a portrait of Kona and Maui. I have given up trying to complete the 30 dogs of my last "30 dogs in 30 days/weeks" project, as it seems almost silly now that three years have passed since I started that project. If I didn't paint your dog as part of that project, I apologize.

I will post a final farewell soon. For now, however, I want to post a link to my Etsy shop for the last time. I am having, for lack of a better term, a fire sale on the art that remains unsold in my studio. Click here to purchase.
