Hello all,

I wonder whether it's possible to using System.Drawing with gtk-sharp
and how as I'm interested to see a cross platform canvas. so here's the
code with winform, could someone pls convert it to gtk-sharp? 

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class BasicForm: Form
  public static void Main()
    BasicForm f = new BasicForm();
  protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
    Graphics g = e.Graphics;
    g.DrawString("This is my string!", new Font("Arial",12),
			Brushes.Black, 25, 25);

Basically, I'd like to access the Graphics so that I can use
System.Drawing stuff. 

I really appreciate any help/suggestions.
