They are well worth your attention. Canvas reproductions have already proven to be magnificent fund raisers.

Leonard's comments:

Oh, I'm sure it's a magnificent fund raiser. Who's gonna tell the bishop, "No, I don't want a canvas reproduction of a painting of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints"? That said, this is way too tacky a sales pitch to be any kind of official church mailing.

The painting is by Lawrence Williams, a famous portrait artist who also painted Presidents of the United States. Portrait Art Reproductions, who I suspect didn't really own the copyright on this painting, doesn't show up on the web, and according to Google Stree View their office is now occupied by the Vintage Skyes boutique.

Sent to my dad in his capacity as bishop of Wilshire Ward.
