A Workshop on Making Deviled Eggs

Pixel by Pixel

The Pixel Painter (2013)

In 2005, when Hal Lasko, a traditional painter, became vision-impaired, he switched to MS Paint and has since created more than 150 digital works of art. His blindness prevents him from viewing his own paintings in their totality, but he continues to work on them pixel by pixel.

He recites Joyce Kilmer's poem Trees.
I think that I shall never see
 A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear 
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems Paintings are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Why hasn't God ever made a pixel painting?
