In Czech language we use the verb “to paint something” not just as the artistic activity, but also as an idiom expressing an often optimistic, unreal vision of reality. Unlike the English originated idiom to look at something with “rose coloured glasses”, our idiom builds on an entirely independent version of itself, its representation, rather than on a reality “seen through”, therefore still a perception.
The difference between rose coloured glasses and painting can also be similar to the change in the nature of photograpy as a digital image. Photography is not being anymore “taken”, but “made”.
