Glass panes -- transparent panes

Hi, I need to be able to draw and to insert small "icons" on top of an image. The background image will never be changed, but I need the ability to draw on it and to generate events. I was thinking if maybe there are any glass panes or transparent panels that can be placed on top of the image, and then draw on the transparent panel. Can anyone help?

Moving to Swing/AWT...
