We recently had an individual ask us about the value and information about this drawing. The drawing shows head shots of each prophet from Joseph Smith to President Benson. The artist signed the drawing with L.B. Lee 1989. They said it was a gift that has been in the family for years. If you have any information about this drawing or are interested in it please comments on this blog post or email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
My father served in the military although he never saw war upfront as he was in the reserves I respect him for his willingness to do so if he had been called up to do so.
I have friend who have served their country proud. Although there is political tension, as far as what should or should not be done with the wars going on; and we know there will be many, I still find it somewhat comforting that many who are out serving our country are also praying for this country. I would ask that in your Christmas prayers this year take time to pray for our soldiers and ask for their safe return home. click here for more information about a Soldier’s Prayer.

The other day I received an email with a very interesting question, a lady from Washington State asked if I knew anything about a velvet copy of the painting of Joseph Smith originally done by Alvin Gittens but copied by Geo M. Boardman. So of course I go to Google to do some research and to my amazement I could not find anything on Geo M. Boardman. I went to the church website and no information in any magazines or literature of the Church. I wonder if Geo is short for George? I searched that too and could not come up with anything concrete. The original painting was done in 1959 the copy was done in 1969 below are pictures of the painting and the only known clues that we currently have. The painting was donated to Louisville stake probably that same year by a Mrs. Milburn Button. If anyone has any information on this that would be fantastic. Please comment below.

I am a member of the Church currently living in WA state. I came across a pastel on velvet portrait of the prophet Joseph Smith. It’s a copy of
Alvin Gittens’ 1959 portrait of the prophet. The portrait was made in 1969 by Geo M. Boardman and the piece was donated to a Louisville stake by Mrs. Milburn Button. I was wondering if you know anything about Geo Boardman?
I would love your opinion on the piece also. Thank you.

I am an avid reader of LDS church literature. When I was a kid a read a book by George D. Durrant. I met Brother Durrant recently and he spoke to me of his interest in getting his own artwork out the general public. He painted a beautiful water color painting of the America Fork Temple called “Houses of the Lord” I am excited to present this painting to others.
