You may, for example, create a new class picture-button-pane, create
pattern from icon image (for example, XPM) and draw pattern above the
push-button in handle-repaint :after method. In this simple example the
dimension of icon.xpm is 21x21 (icon is attached). Also I hardcoded
width and height of the button in (compose-space...)  to (29x29 px) and
translation to (4,4).

Type (picture-button-demo::run) to run the example.

(defpackage :picture-button-demo
  (:use #:clim-lisp #:clim))

(in-package :picture-button-demo)

(defun run ()
  (run-frame-top-level (make-application-frame 'button-demo)))

(defclass picture-button-pane (push-button-pane)
  ((pattern :accessor pattern :initarg :pattern)))

(define-application-frame button-demo ()
  (:menu-bar nil)
     :name 'picture-button
     :pattern (climi::make-pattern-from-bitmap-file
	       "/path/to/your/icon.xpm" :format :pixmap-3))))
   (:main button)))

(defmethod handle-repaint :after ((pane picture-button-pane) region)
  (draw-design pane (pattern pane)
	       :transformation (make-transformation 0 0 0 0 4 4)
	       :clipping-region region))

(defmethod compose-space ((gadget picture-button-pane) &key width height)
  (declare (ignore width height))
  (make-space-requirement :width 29 :height 29
			  :max-height 29 :max-width 29
			  :min-height 29 :min-width 29))
