Confused on connecting my program to my drawing

I figured it out, Foo now extends JPanel and MyPanel went away.

Not sure what the protocol is here, should I answer my question like I just did, or ask the mods to delete the post?

Original post follows.

My main program will repeatedly populate and display a grid of data. My problem is, when I need to draw the grid I need access to both my data and my graphics object. Referencing the code below, if I draw it in the Foo class I don't know how to get my graphics object. If I do it in MyPanel.paintComponant then I don't know how to get at Foo's data.

I've stripped my code as much as I can, which is why some of it may not make sense. The goal is to let Foo manipulate the grid array and display it every time I finish an iteration (note, I stripped the looping over grid out of the code)
