How do I get the background image to display in my Canvas playArea?


// Set up the game window
      private void configureGUI()
      {
            try
            {
                  Image img = ImageIO.read(new File("C:/Java/background.jpg"));
            }
            catch (IOException e)
            {
                  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                  e.printStackTrace();
            }
           
            // Create the window object
            frame = new JFrame("Comets");
            frame.setSize(playWidth+20, playHeight+35);
            frame.setResizable(false);
                       
            // The program should end when the window is closed
            frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
           
            // Set the window's layout manager
            frame.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
           
            // Create the play area
            playArea = new Canvas();
            playArea.setSize(playWidth, playHeight);
            playArea.setBackground(Color.BLACK);
            playArea.setFocusable(false);
            frame.add(playArea);
           
            // Make the frame listen to keystrokes
            frame.addKeyListener(this);
      }
