Do you actually need paint graphics? Using object graphics would work better unless you actually need paint. This will create a graphic oval:

on mouseUp
  create grc "aNewCircle"
  set the style of grc "aNewCircle" to "oval"
  set the rect of grc "aNewCircle" to 100,100,300,300
end mouseUp

If you need paint, is it just a circle you're after? If so then this is very quick:

on mouseUp
  choose oval tool
  set the lineSize to 5
  set penColor to "blue"
  drag from 100,100 to 300,300
  choose browse tool
end mouseUp

regards,

Geoff
