noob GDI troubles

My program makes colored snow. It's just a learning tool. Anyway, when I move my program off screen, and then move it back into view.....the entire client window gets erased and the background brush is restored. I lose all the snow I made. How can I prevent that? Ideally, I want to save the client area and then restore it. I think I need to work with WM_PAINT, but I'm at a loss.
