Hi Kate, welcome to the Javaranch.

You can try to "clear" the current canvas (i.e. the screen) before you
draw something. This can be done with the following:

void paint(Graphics g)
- set the color to for instance white or black
- draw a rectangle, that fills the whole canvas

Then the screen has been cleared, and you can draw the image.
