It bears mentioning that the "lasso" and the "grab patch" tools  
(found in the Graphics category of the Objects catalog) allow the  
user to designate areas on the screen to be "grabbed"; the result of  
such a grab is the creation of a new "sketch", just as if the area  
designated had just been painted.

These provide a way that multiple smaller objects can be derived from  
a single initial painting without having to redo the artwork.
