Need advice: when is it appropriate to ask for a refund and how?

Hello everyone, I need your advice. I will not say names now as I hope to resolve this with the artist.

I have paid for a very expensive commission (3 digit amount), and the artist has been giving me various excuses for not being able to work on it for over half a year. I now have no use for the picture anymore and I am thinking of asking for a refund. The artist has done some work on it but only with a lot of nagging, and it is giving me a lot of stress because it is a very large amount of money. The artist is also difficult to communicate with and sometimes unpleasant. 

Is it appropriate to ask for a full refund in this situation, and how should I approach the artist about it?
I will provide more information if necessary. Thanks in advance.
