      Yes, it's in northern California, it's one of the Wyntoon houses which was "William Randolf Hearst's secret hideway". I have a lot of pictures of the house that I've been saving because I'm a 3D builder in Second Life and it's been on my mind to build it. The paintings are amazing. I believe this one is the Storybook House that's on the estate. I'll upload some and create a board for it. Here's a link to an article about the estate: http://whirledview.typepad....

      Wonderful photos -- I have quite a few photos from my mother [who lived in McCloud] but nothing as detailed as these. Beautiful!

      Willy Pogany, a Hollywood set designer and illustrator of children’s books, created the murals on the timber façade of Bear House (according to the Sept. 2007 issue of Architectural Digest magazine)

      Thanks for the information! I know Willy Pogany's pen & ink work well, but I'd never have guessed these murals were by him.
