    I have tried this...

    Dim FontBrush as new brush  &  system.drawing.brushes.brush

  • There are three brush types, SolidBrush, GradientBrush and TextureBrush.  You probalbly want SolidBrush, in which case there is also a Brushes enum you can use rather than creating a new brush, which you would then need to dispose.  Brush is just a base class.
