Gtk.Image can load Gdk.Pixbufs. Pixbufs can load from common image
encodings. So use the following function to get your pixbuf by saving
the System.Drawing.Image into memory then loading into the pixbuf
(originally posted by Eric Butler in May:

private Gdk.Pixbuf ImageToPixbuf (System.Drawing.Image image)
	using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream ()) {
		image.Save (stream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
		stream.Position = 0;
		return new Gdk.Pixbuf (stream);
