Let's talk Commissions

I recently sent out a Commission Alert, letting my list members know that I had some openings on my Commission List.

Thanks to the feedback I've received, I've done a little tweaking on my policies and prices.  That always means I go flying all over the internet seeing what other artists are doing with their prices, comparing my work to theirs (as much as is possible), and getting great ideas from what others have come up with.

Here's my favorite, which I just this minute added to my website's Commission page.

A Collector's Discount!

Yeah, that's what I said!  Some of you who have already bought portraits from me in the past, I'm talking to you, as well as to anyone who might want to have more than one portrait from me.  Check this out.

If you would like multiple portraits, you will be given a 20% discount after your first.  If you order more than one at a time, you will be given a 20% discount on the entire order.

Since we all like that word "discount", I thought I'd throw it in here as well:
Additional subjects can be added, human or pet!  The first additional subject is discounted 50%, and each additional subject after that can be added at a 70% discount. 
See what I did there?  With that fun word?

So, I'll leave you with that thought for the moment.  Don't forget to sign up for my Commission Alert List, so you know when I have an opening.
