Buffered Image with Glass pane

I have a frame that is using the border layout.
I've placed a buffered image in the center section of the layout. I'd like to use the Glass pane to draw temporary graphics but from what I've read, the Glass pane covers the whole frame. Is it possible to have the same functionaly as the Glass pane but for areas that are specifiable by me?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks

Aixsar,

I don't think you need to use GlassPane. If you already have a BufferedImage, you can draw directly on the BufferedImage (or a temporary copy of it) before rendering the final image.

Here is some modified source from the Java 2D Graphics programming book from O'Reilly. You can get the original examples by going to http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/java2d and following the "Examples" link on the left side of the page. In addition to the source below, you'll need ApplicationFrame.java and Raphael.jpg to get this to work.
