A portrait of Missouri first lady Melanie Blunt was unveiled this week at the governor's mansion in Jefferson City.
“It is difficult to express my enduring and heartfelt appreciation for Melanie’s wonderful work as wife, mother and first lady and for her dedicated service to our great state,” said Gov. Matt Blunt. “I am grateful for her loving support and strength each and every day.”
Melanie Blunt is the 28th first lady to have her portrait painted and added to the collection at the mansion. Gilbert "Chick" Early painted the portrait, now on display in the mansion's Great Hall.
