I would like to make 5 rows each with 10 blocks of Rectangles

When I run this I only see the last row, and I can't figure out why?

Also is there a better way to approach this ? / ie: creating Rectangle objects.

thanks for your time

Your problem is with the for loops; read carefully what you are entering into the array and what you are retrieving.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
