Thats something you tell the program. You reimplement the method
'paintEvent' for a widget class like in the example I posted. Then for a
particular instance of the widget, the window is painted everytime a
paintEvent occurs and the widget get painted. A paintEvent event occurs eg.
when a window is hidden underneath another window and then shown.

To a draw a pixmap onto a widget do something like this in the paintEvent

def paintEvent(self, event):
painter = QtGui.QPainter(64,64)
pixmap = QtGui.QPixmap()
