g2d.clearRect(0,0,this.getWidth(), this.getHeight()) should work

typically you don't clear. for example each time the paintComponent() method of a JComponent is called the 'canvas' is already blank.

I guess in order to claer your component in the class where you have
paint method you set up a boolean value, say,
and then  
you just say

  and in you paint(Graphics g) method first thing
you check this boolean
 and return if it is set:

if(clear)return;

  Then if you need to blank your component, you
just say:

   myPanel.setClear(true);
  repaint();

and it  should clean the panel or canvas for you

I figured out that I had to draw a white rectangle over the entire screen at the beginning of my paint method.

I think three comments should be considered to be a solution
ID: 34940178 (166 points)
ID: 34940229 (166 points)
ID: 34940446 (166 points)

Any one of these can be considered as an accepted solution, the other two
are assisted solution

The comment by wrynn  ID: 36156857
in fact repeats the solution which was mentioned above

Fine with giving points to experts.  The solution used by the asker is not the same as the suggestions by for_yan, hence the original assignment to the asker.  But experts worked at it, so giving points to them is fine.  The first answer from objects is the correct one, but not what the asker used, so hard to say here.
