I got a bit of nice feedback for my first query attempt, but I suspect it can be improved a lot more. Please see my last post if you might be able to help me!
Naturally I dreamed of my favorite artist, Alan Lee, doing a piece, but of course that is pure fantasy (Hey, I'm a fantasy writer; I can dream). Mr. Lee doesn't have any web presence that I can find, so there was no means of asking him his prices. I guess he doesn't need to take on commissions anymore.
