Thanks Jim,

This got me an image, but the color map is all wrong.  What else so I have
to do?

    q = QWidget()
    view = QLabel(q)
    pixmap = QPixmap()

Alternatively, make 'view' a QLabel instead of QWidget, since QLabel knows
to display a pixmap (or look at the QLabel C++ code if you really need to 
draw it yourself)
