I don't currently have a copy of Painter and there is not much
information about it on winehq.org.  I'll download their 30-day trial
package and give it a shot.  

ArtRage does indeed seem to do what I want (here at work on WinXP).  I'd
prefer a native application but if it works, I'll use it.  I'll try it
at home on FC/Wine and compare it with Painter and decide if Corel can
justify their $400 price tag (unlikely for my casual use).  Thanks.
