Title: All-seeing Painting

There is a painting with its canvas painted entirely in black. Prove that this painting could let you see everything.

You mean someone painted this painting entirely in black?!  Well, now [hide]I've seen everything[/hide]!

Witty answers both dudiobugtron's especially! In fact, his answer is so good that I have no choice but to accept it is as alternative solution. There may be those who disagree with my decision, but I disagree with them so we're even.

Dead quiet, spectatorless streets. The wind kicking empty plastic water bottles and paper cups. A forgotten marathon runner out of breath trips up on his own feet, awkwardly falls three yards before the finish line, crawls whispering:

- ... since everything ... in this painting ... is black ... that's exactly ... what you ... see ...

(finger tips kissing the finish line)

Get lost rloginunix. Nothing beats dudiobugtron's answer. Including mine. I won't get lost though. This is my riddle. That has to count for something.

About the intended and perhaps a bit questionable answer... You didn't forget about it. Did you? This answer is, well, [hide]sad and tragic. So if you wan't to think happy thoughts, just forget about it, even though you will break my heart, Fredo.[/hide]

Peyton Westlake: What is it about the dark? What secret does it hold?

Perhaps a certain psalm from the Bible will help you out.
