When you add a parameter to the paint method, you are no longer overriding it but overloading it instead. You need to keep a reference (instance field) to the color to use.

You know how to create an instance variable of type Color, don't you? Then you change display as you've tried before. paint keeps the same parameter list as originally though (only Graphics), and uses the instance variable in the calls to display.
