spines of those albums as the artwork, similar to as shown at right. The height of
the album spines will match the height of the portrait subject. Height of the final
work will be 84 inches; width will be 36 inches. Portrait subject can live globally as
discussion of the chosen albums will occur via email. Framing will be by Art
Services Melrose, to the artist's specifications. These commissioned portraits are
widely pursued by collectors but it is rare for Mr. Muller to create them.
