Commissioned Illustration Offer - Short/Easy

As a person who pays for commissioned work... If I pay you for the work, I own the results of that work. I would never sign or pay anyone based on this agreement. There is no way that I would commission a work and not expect to hold 100% rights of all forms on it. Now .. if you were showing a piece of art that you previously created prior to us meeting and I wanted to purchase for whatever reason .. that is a different story. But if I come to you and say "I will pay you $250 to draw a picture of my boat." You draw the picture and I pay you .. I own it all the rights and liabilities that come along with it. Why would I pay you to do work if you could go elsewhere and make money based off the concept that I presented to you and paid you to work on?
