Got two questions!
140 is the starting point in x
70 is the y point
modifying 20 I can make it wider
100 moves it up
How can I reduce the height???
How can I get brown color??? I can not find it.
Thanks in advance for your time

The arguments to fillRect are the x and y coordinates of the top left corner, and the width and height of the rectangle, in that order. Note that as in most computer graphics APIs, Y=0 is in the upper left corner of the screen and increases as you move downwards.
"new Color(156, 93, 82)" is a nice JavaRanchy brown color, the color of Bruce the Moose's antlers.
