Custom artwork

In addition to the wide range of subject matters that I enjoy painting, I also offer the option for custom artwork! Whether it’s a general idea you have or an exact picture to paint from, I’ll work with you every step of the way on sizes, colors and any other suggestions that I can give. When I create a custom piece, I create it to tell your story through my paintbrush so it’s meaningful for you!

FAQS: Commissions

For Starters, what exactly is a commission?

I refer to commissions as being a “custom artwork” order.

How long does the commission process typically take?

I estimate 4-8 weeks from start to delivery but may vary depending on our schedule. Please let me know if you need the painting earlier and I will do my best to accommodate your individual needs.

What are the commissions painted on?

All commissions are done using an acrylic medium on archival quality canvas. The canvases are stretched over a wooden frame with a 1-1/2” (1.5) profile or ¾” (.75) profile. Another option is acrylic pad-paper that is nice and thin, making it easy to frame in a ready-made-frame. Please specify which one you prefer. Prices vary for each.

What is your shipping policy for custom artwork?

Please include in your quote under descriptions, whether or not you will need your piece shipped along with the shipping address. I will build in a separate shipping quote with the painting quote so you’ll have a general idea from the get-go.

I live in Charlotte, NC and would rather pick up my painting than have it shipped. Is that an option?

Absolutely! Please contact me directly at so that we can arrange a pick up.

How do I ensure that my custom order has been placed?

I require a 50% deposit upfront to reserve your space in my commission calendar. The remaining balance is due upon approval of the painting proof that will be emailed to you as soon as it’s finished. As soon as we have an agreement on the quote I will send you an emailed invoice via PayPal for the deposit.

Is there anything that you wont do custom?

I would love to say YES to all of your personal requests! Unfortunately, for the sake of staying true to my brand, I will turn down requests that I do not feel align with the Durrett Designs brand wheelhouse. You can find examples of the variety of styles and subject matters that I’ve archived under GALLERY.
