In which line of code does the exception occur? Which object is null?

You shouldn't be doing painting in an action handler. You need a paint (or paintComponent) method that is invoked by you calling repaint(), as has been suggested to you elsewhere.

Start by working through http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/painting/.

Also note that mixing AWT and Swing components is a bad idea, as was pointed out as well.

I agree with Lester Burnham the getGraphics() method returns null when the component is not displaying on the screen it return actual graphics object only when the component is displaying on the screen (read getGraphics() method ditails).
