So, you're an artist. I call you up and ask you to come over and paint my family.
You arrive to ggive me a quote, perhaps, and to look for a suitable setting for the portrait.
I know the painting will be done over a period of three or four weeks, in several stages (initial sketches, possibly some photos as the kids will fidget so) then....
"Oh, before you go, just paint a quick portrait of me, will you - you've got 60 minutes, because there's another three artists coming later to quote too."

still want the job?

If I knew then what I know today, then I'd know the same now as I did then - then what would be the point?
