You don't create Graphics objects; AWT/Swing creates them, and then provides them to your code in appropriate places, such as inside of paint or paintComponent methods. You may want to work through the chapter on custom painting in the Sun Java Tutorial.

Since this is a Swing-related question I shall move it to the Swing forum.
