you should do all drawing in the expose_event handler. If
you want the displayed image to change you can force a redraw
by calling gtk_widget_queue_redraw(). This will cause the
emission of an expose_event for the whole drawing area as
soon as the main loop becomes idle. Your expose_handler is
called and you can redraw the image.
