Draw Random Picture Program

Here is a Draw Random Picture program, with this program you can draw random pictures of a night sky, in a city, during a lightning storm. The user specifies the number of lines in the background, the number of turns in each line in the background, the base color in the background, the number of bolts of lightning, the number of turns in each bolt of lightning, the color of the lightning,and how quickly the color of background changes. After the picture is generated the user can then save the picture as a .jpg, .bmp, or .png file.
