Oil on canvas, 10x10

I am going to sell the 100 10-inch-by-10-inch paintings by subscription and lottery.
Here's how it will work. You pay me $100, and that entitles you one painting from the 100.
The first 40 people who subscribe will have their choice of any of the 100 paintings, when the group is completed. Those 40 get their choices according to their place in the list. The first one to subscribe gets the first choice of all the 100 paintings. The second to subscribe chooses second, etc.
After the first 40 subscribers have made their choices, the remaining 60 will be entered into a lottery to determine their selection order.
I will put these up on a special page on my website, or here, or both.
What do you think? Is this a good way to do it?
According to my pricing structure, these 10 by 10s, at $100, are 30 percent to 50 percent below what they would be at a show, and even more below what they would be at a gallery. The $100 includes tax, which makes them an even better deal.
While I can't promise that the 100 will be finished by Christmas - they probably won't - if anyone wants to give one as a Christmas present, I'll supply you with a nice gift certificate card that says what number the recipient is in the order...
Comments? Ideas? Refinements? Interest? Let me know!
Here's my painting in front of the marsh in Clinton.
