Thanks, as I mentioned earlier, that helped.  I have a new problem now 
the image I'm drawing on is a transparent PNG, and any text that's drawn is
also transparent, i.e. it just 'cuts out' pieces of the image instead of 
colored text..  how do I fix that?

PS:  I'm not on the list so I would appreciate a CC.
