These murals were commissioned for the home of a family  in Pinckney, Michigan, a few hours drive from the artist's Royal Oak, Michigan, home. 

Bill sent me these images in 2006. 

This was probably the last really large commission he received and completed. 

I  imagine that in particularly dismal winters these murals must be an endless source of joy.

I hope that they are well maintained. 

Who wouldn't want to live in  - or visit - such a lovely shrine. 

I  never fully understood why Bill prized this family so much until this moment. 

Though I do not know them, really, I love them, myself. As Bill obviously did.
