I need help creating an in-memory GDI+ drawing canvas that is the Win32 equivalent of a device context with a defined width and height on which I can carry out a variety of drawing operations using GDI+ objects and methods.  The operations that I need to do include loading an image from file, drawing lines, writing text, etc. When this is completed, I need to be able to take the information from the in-memory canvas and write it out to a file or stream.

Can somebody point me in the right direction for how to go about doing this in .Net 2.0?

You should be able to use the System.Drawing.Bitmap and System.Drawing.Graphics classes to achieve what you need.
