Why have a painting instead of a photograph?

Just as there’s tremendous difference between recorded and Live music, there’s a difference between Photograph and painting. Photograph is simple recording of the scene with no possibility of different interpretations. Photograph represents reality as it is. Reality is nothing but perception. Everyone will have the same perception of a photograph. Whereas, painting has emotional appeal,  it’s an interpretation of reality where multiple perceptions are possible.
