Canine-inspired charcoal drawings, oil paintings, works on paper and four-legged sculptures
South Florida artist Skip Hartzell creates large paintings, sculptures and drawings that capture the essence of “dog”, all of the work is rich with intricacies of color and technique. His painterly expression captures each dog’s own personality with beautiful textures, line and brush strokes using mixed media to bring each dog to life. He is best known for his unique sculptures recognized immediately by their distinct form and style that only Hartzell can produce.

“Dogs are always in the moment. Although nothing in life has held my attention longer or has been more fascinating to me than dogs, my work is about much more than that. It is about form, movement, color and texture. The dogs are a recognizable common denominator that allows me to communicate my joy of living, passions and sentiments.” —Skip Hartzell.

Whether he’s painting or sculpting, Hartzell’s dogs have a wonderful quality of friendliness about them, and it’s hard to keep yourself from reaching out to touch. And that’s perfectly okay with Hartzell. He’s never been one to place a rope around his artwork.
