Windows has a basic Paint program built in, and the classic MacOS used to have one in Claris/Apple Works that everyone had, but this seems to be missing from OSX. Anyone got any recommendations?

Not the solution you are looking for, but I have run MSPAINT under WINE emulation for years.
Simple but satisfactory.
;JOOP!

I have bootcamp. Is WINE emulation parallels?
wine = wine is not an emulator

It’s an installable Win library with a GUI settings front end. I used it many years ago on various Linux distros and found it unsatisfactory back then. I’m sure it’s improved, but you’ll be better off sticking with native softwares.

NO. I don't know parallels, but IF you can run MSWindows on it, try MSPAINT from there.

I'm not using WINE as is: I bought CROSSOVER which packages WINE inside. Much better.

Yes, very familiar with crossover. Glad it works well for you. No need for it here. I multi-boot and use VMWare. These are better solutions for my particular needs.

Nothing against WINE/CROSOVER, it’s just that native code is always better where possible.
