’51 Chevy and Dogs

This painting was done for  neighborhood friends whose ’51 Chevy is spectacularly restored.  I had previously painted their dogs and when they asked me to do this painting I was excited to do what I thought would be a great composition.  That said, I have to admit it was so much more of a struggle than I thought it would be.  I had shots of their beloved dogs, but had trouble with positioning them in the truck and painting them with such small features.  I also struggled with the background as the photo was taken in front of a garage and I wanted to do something different………should have stuck to the garage.  This is too green and perspective is off, somehow.  Hoping matting and framing will help!
