CListCtrl(CListView) Problem: how to draw bitmap background for big icon view

I am trying to put a bitmap background for my list view controls. I have a solution for report view with LVS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style, by overwriting function DrawItem of class CListView.
However for big icon view, the function DrawItem() of CListCtrl or CListView won't get called. So I overwrite the OnPaint() function to repaint everything. It basically works, but I got a lot of problems-- such as the device context is not right, and it blinks annoyingly when I click on the client area. I believe it's not the right way to do it, I think it'd better to tell the parent the visual aspect of the list view has changed so that DrawItem can be called, but I don't know how.
If anyone has some experience on this, please give me some idea, I'd appreciate your help. Thank you in advance.

Override OnEraseBkgnd, and paint the background there. This should prevent the flickering, and be faster the OnPaint.
