Did you know you could use Microsoft Excel to make realistic paintings?

Microsoft Excel might typically be used for accounting and reporting, but as it turns out, it can also be used for something else: art.

73-year-old Tatsuo Horiuchi uses the software to make realistic paintings. His latest work depicts his hometown Okura in the Nagano Prefecture, with its stunning Larch trees blanketed with snow during the winter.

According to Horiuchi, he started using Excel some 13 years ago after he grew bored from retirement and needed a new challenge. He eventually bought a computer and found that Excel was even better than MS Paint.

“Graphics software is expensive but Excel comes pre-installed in most computers,” said Horiuchi. “And it has more functions and is easier to use than [Microsoft] Paint.”

He also tried MS Word, but found that it wasn’t as creative as Excel. “Take that, Wall St. analysts,” added Horuichi.

As you can see Microsoft Excel has so many capabilities; so, to what extent have you explored it.

Excel is a very powerful spreadsheet application designed to save you time so that you can spend more time generating ideas to drive your business forward.  Most office staff can use Excel to a basic level for data entry and formatting cells. Few make it to the next level of analysis to be able to build models, conduct scenario analysis, and apply checks to flag errors, create a dashboard or format the data to a client-ready standard.

One needs to identify experts in this field for training so as to improve their productivity levels. Mr. Excel at Summit Consulting wants to share his wealth of experience Knowledge.
