CDC Ellipse() and Rectangle() background fill

I have to do a simple assignment for a class that requires the user to be able to give the parameters of a rectangle or circle and have them draw on the screen.  I am done with it except for one point.  When I use the CDC Ellipse() and Rectangle() functions, they are drawing a soild background color.  I would prefer that they use a "transparent" background and allow what is already drawn in the DC to show behind them.

Here is code I am using to draw:

void Rect::Draw(CDC* pDC, CPoint drawOrigin)
{
      CPen shapePen(PS_SOLID,2,this->m_shapeColor);
      CPen* oldPen = pDC->SelectObject(&shapePen);
      pDC->Rectangle(
            this->m_upperLeft.x + drawOrigin.x,
            this->m_upperLeft.y + drawOrigin.y,
            this->m_bottomRight.x + drawOrigin.x,
            this->m_bottomRight.y + drawOrigin.y
      );
      pDC->SelectObject(oldPen);
}

void Circle::Draw(CDC* pDC, CPoint drawOrigin)
{
      CPen shapePen(PS_SOLID,2,this->m_shapeColor);
      CPen* oldPen = pDC->SelectObject(&shapePen);
      pDC->Ellipse(
            this->m_center.x - this->m_radius + drawOrigin.x,
            this->m_center.y - this->m_radius + drawOrigin.y,
            this->m_center.x + this->m_radius + drawOrigin.x,
            this->m_center.y + this->m_radius + drawOrigin.y
      );
      pDC->SelectObject(oldPen);
}

Is there a simple way to make a transparent background for the shapes with this code?  I say simple because I don't think the solid background is going to lose me any points, so I am not going to implement a solution unless it can be done relatively painlessly.

Thanks for the help,

Sorry, ignore my previous post.

void Rect::Draw(CDC* pDC, CPoint drawOrigin)
{
     CPen shapePen(PS_SOLID,2,this->m_shapeColor);
     CPen* oldPen = pDC->SelectObject(&shapePen);

     CBrush brush;
     brush.CreateStockObject(NULL_BRUSH);
     CBrush* oldBrush =  (CBrush*)pDC->SelectObject(&brush);

     pDC->Rectangle(
          this->m_upperLeft.x + drawOrigin.x,
          this->m_upperLeft.y + drawOrigin.y,
          this->m_bottomRight.x + drawOrigin.x,
          this->m_bottomRight.y + drawOrigin.y
     );

     pDC->SelectObject(oldBrush);
     pDC->SelectObject(oldPen);
}

aah okay.  i didn't realize the brush was responsible for the fill of the shape.  i will give that a shot.
