This solves the problem for me in natty:

[/etc/default/grub]:
    GRUB_BACKGROUND="<path to grub.png>"

And then run update-grub.

You'll see the image as soon as grub starts, and it will stay on the screen until X starts (or plymouth, whichever comes first).

This solution almost seems too perfect and simple (?!)
