Welcome to JavaRanch, Jon!
I'm glad we could help by being your Cardboard Analyst.
As a good beginner tip that helped me out a lot, if you weren't already familiar with it, let me introduce you to the J2SE API documentation. It does a great job of documenting and describing almost all of the classes (and their methods) available in the J2SE API.
It's a very nice resource for doing things like looking up what methods are available to a Graphics type object, including the names of methods, what parameters they take, what might get returned, what various methods do, etc.
Good luck and I hope to see you 'round the Ranch!
