Thanks to each of you for your comments. Yes, Debbie you are correct, places like this mill and the barns you mentioned are slowly going away. The new steel barns, while strong and functional. lack the unique qualities displayed by the old relics of the years past. Lesson to be learned: never pass up the opportunity to take those photos, it may not be there the next time you pass by.

Love it! Congrats!!

Wow, it is so sad that they tore it down, I am thankful that you managed to find some older shots. I have shots of barns that are gone and others left to rot. It breaks my heart that we are slowly loosing a part of out history that can never be replaced.

Fantastic work!!! LOVE this amazing watercolor work!! Congratulations on your sale!! f/love! :D

congrats on your sale, Monte!

I absolutely LOVE Monica's artwork and it's extra special to be able to carry her artwork around with me wherever I go. Quality of the bag is good, too!

I’m very pleased with my Back2bike bag from artist John Kurtyka. The bag is high quality so it holds my library books quite securely. And since I’m a bike rider, I love the picture, so unique, people notice it and comment so I tell them about this website and the unique works of this artist.

Gorgeous photo on the bag. Loved that I could adjust the photo size to suit my preference. Wanted to use for going to the health food store as I need to replace the 15 year old canvas, washable bags I have now. These will not last as long as those canvas bags. I could even deal with slight fading when I needed to wash them. These do not feel washable. Cheap mesh "fabric" on the interior will tear. Disappointed in the fabric on the inside and outside.

I was hoping for a heavyweight cotton canvas bag to use for grocery shopping; this will not be it. I wanted a bag that would be washable. This has a cheap mesh fabric on the interior that will tear in short order. The exterior is some sort of nylon or other synthetic fabric that I do not feel comfortable washing. I guess I didn't realize what kind of fabric it was made of. It is beautiful but not useful for my needs.

I wanted some pretty tote canvas tote bags to replace the durable canvas bags I use for trips to the health food store. While certainly beautiful, this bag will not be useful for that purpose. The interior is made of that lightweight, cheap mesh fabric that tears with the slightest bit of stress on it. I was hoping for heavy canvas, but this is an odd fabric that will not hold up for what I wanted to use it for.

Very nice bag and very nice picture on it ! thank you

Artist's Description

For over 40 years I passed near this old mill in Independence, Kansas. "One day I'm going to take some photos of that old place and do a painting," I told myself many times. In 2010 I decided to finally do the painting. I arrived in Independence with my camera to be told "They tore it down two weeks ago." Fortunately I had access to previous photos I pieced together to create this image. The area where it once stood for many years is now as barren as the foreground in this painting.

About Monte Toon

In 1969, Monte Toon began his career as a watercolorist. He credits the late Charles Sanderson of Wichita, Kansas, with setting him on his life-long path of watercolor painting. Sanderson inspired new approaches and techniques. Later, the works of Winslow Homer, Andrew Wyeth and Edward Hopper would influence Toon's work. More than 49 years experience has defined Toon's style in his exclusive use of watercolor. In 1991, a turning point occurred in Toon's work. Travels in Canada, New England and the east coast broadened his range of subject matter. By setting goals and directions of purpose, Monte enhanced and elevated his works to new heights resulting in numerous solo shows of merit. He refers to this change as a re-dedication...
