That's a pretty poor attempt. If you don't know how to prove it can you at least give us a few thoughts on why you think it might (or might not) be true?

If a function f(z) is differentiable on a set G, then it is continuous on G. If it continuous, the image of every open set is an open set. Done(?).

Nice that you are trying to think about it. But that's not true in the real numbers. f(x)=x^2 is continuous and differentiable, but it's not open. The proof is going to have to involve special properties of analytic functions.

Anything to do with "Analytic continuation" that I see on Wikipedia?

That's part of it. Rouche's theorem is probably the main ingredient.
