* from the world menu, choose "appearance..."


* drop an image into Squeak, form its halo menu button choose "set as background"


* bring up the world's halo, click the pink "change color" handle


* shift-click the halo's pink "change color" handle, edit the property sheet


* click the halo's gray "paint background" handle, draw something nice


* from the red menu button in the halo, choose "fill style"

Well, that works too :)

But you could also paint a little dot, and create a simple script by drag-and-drop to paint nice patterns:
