Hal Lasko: The Pixel Painter

    Earlier versions of Windows boasted Microsoft Paint. Photoshop was too expensive, so it was a free tool we all used.  97 year old  Hal Lasko an artist still uses MS Paint to create elaborate paintings.  It shows you what tenacity and patience can produce.

    Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.  Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is like a collision of pointillism and 8-Bit art.
