TravelPledge Welcomes Classic Portrait Source by Sayles!

You may already be familiar with TravelPledge’s extensive selection of vacations, cruises, lessons and golf packages. Meet our latest addition: Classic Portrait Source by Sayles.

Classic Portrait Source by Sayles is a premier provider of custom oil painting portraits. They are proud to have created hundreds of fine portraits for families.

TravelPledge is excited to feature this generous business to our community of non-profits. We encourage you to consider Classic Portrait Source by Sayles for your next auction.

About the Experience

Winning bidders may sit for a custom oil painting portrait. Master Portrait Artist Donald Robert Sayles will meet them at one of his studios (Chicago or Detroit) or at their home to do a creative portrait sitting.

Subjects 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 a child before they head to kindergarten. While most artists charge for extra subjects, winning bidders may choose to include any combination of people in your immediate family at no additional fee: adult couples, children or the entire immediate family.

They’ll have a timeless heirloom portrait to hang above the mantel for generations.
