Commissioner Question

Hello There,

I am a commissioner and have been for quite a few years and just recently, in the last month, (March - April) I had an artist come out of the blue and say how fabulous my web site is and wanted to know if I could commission them. Now I don't usually commission anyone that comes to me out of the blue but the artist (who shall remain nameless) has rather good artwork and took the chance upon doing so to commission them. Now forgive me if this is rude or comes across as rude but if an ARTIST approaches you for a commission and such, would I be expectant in a quicker turn around? Or faster service then normal since they came to me? Would I still have the normal protection if I had gone to them and they accepted? I honestly think it's the first time I had someone come to me asking me to commission them and was on the back-foot. Is this also common practice or do the artists here rather have customers come to them?

Sorry for the rambling!

I'd assume to expect the same turn around as anyone who were to approach them for a commission.

It's not common place for an artist to randomly message people trying to get someone to buy their art, I tend to report said messages as spam when they do try that with me.

Does it happen often to you? It's the first time ever for me in years. Didn't think it to be spam myself til you mentioned it.
