Artistic License

Do you ever use
Artistic License?

I use it quite often.
My vision is usually more colorful
than reality.

Here is a little painting I'm working on now.

When I visited Big Bend National Park
I saw beautiful multi colored pear cactus.
Of course it wasn't quite as colorful as this,
but none the less, it WAS colorful,
mostly pinkish with some green and purple.
So, I just went with it!
West Tx. is known for its heat,
so the background became RED!
This is FUN!
Savor the Day!

That's right! If you want it just to look exactly like real life, take a photo. Art is for vision!

I like the way you see the prickly pears. They are much prettier your way.
