About this Experience
Sit for a 20x24" custom oil painting portrait of the subject's head and shoulders. Master Portrait Artist Donald Robert Sayles will meet you at one of his studios (Chicago or Detroit) or at your home to do a creative portrait sitting. You will be part of the entire process of selecting the background setting, clothing and artist style. This unique experience is usually reserved for royal families and celebrities.
Consider an elegant portrait of the man or lady of the house, or a portrait of your child before they head to kindergarten. While most artists charge for extra subjects, you may choose to include any combination of people in your immediate family at no additional fee: adult couples, children or the entire immediate family. You'll have a timeless heirloom portrait to hang above the mantel for generations.
Classic Portrait Source by Sayles is proud to have created hundreds of fine portraits for families. We specialize in giving our clients a unique portrait that reflects each person's essence on a piece of canvas.
https://cloud.travelpledge.com/Classic Portrait Source by Sayles, with studios in Chicago and Detroit, has been providing families with the finest quality of commissioned oil paintings and fine photographic portraits since 1945.
By the time a family has grown and the children have moved , there should be at least one portrait of each person in the family.
-A portrait of the lady of the house (in her wedding gown or an elegant portrait that captures her personality)
-The Man (a portrait that incorporates his profession or hobby)
-Each child (preferably, between the age of 2 to 6)
-A grouping of all of the children after the youngest is at least two to three years of age
-The entire family before the family structure changes with engagements and weddings
Your child is very important to your family and the more often they get that message, the more it registers. For years, many young families have followed a wonderful tradition of having an “Oil Painting” style wall portrait of each child at 3-5 years old, before they start Kindergarten.
The first child in the family starts the process with their wall portrait, and each child that follows has their turn to be added to the “Wall of Honor”.
“I think they knew they were important before but, after the portraits was hung, there is no doubt about it,” said a mother from Fenton, Michigan
One grandmother who sponsors a wall portrait of each grand child at 4 ½ years said, “Once we started the program with the first grandchild, the others were extremely excited when it became their turn . . . we have one more to go.”
“ Every day the kids see the portraits on the wall when they get up to start the day – they know they must be important.”
Besides the positive effect on the child’s self esteem, the parents have a wonderful piece of artwork that captures each child at the “Golden Age of Childhood”.
