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!

Before I went on hiatus, there were times where I would contact frequent flyers of mine personally if they'd like a commission. Sort of like a "veteran status" type deal if they have been doing business with me for a long time. But I would never do that to an individual I haven't worked with before. So that is rather strange. I agree with the others on here and say you should expect the same turnaround as a regular person.
