As Governor Mitch Daniels’ official portrait was unveiled Tuesday, he says he hopes the accomplishments of his administration will far outlast Hoosiers’ memory of him.
The portrait shows Daniels standing in his office, without a suit coat, leaning against a chair and holding a pen in his hand. Lafayette native Richard Halstead, one of 43 applicants, was commissioned by the Indiana State Museum to paint it.
Halstead says Daniels had only one request – that the painting not be artificial or unnatural.
