THE of­fi­cial por­trait for Queens­land’s first fe­male premier Anna Bligh will fi­nally be un­veiled at Par­lia­ment House to­mor­row, more than five years af­ter she left of­fice.

Ms Bligh (pic­tured) told The Sun­day Mail the por­trait was de­layed by her can­cer bat­tle and a heavy work sched­ule af­ter she re­cov­ered.

Ms Bligh chose award-win­ning Queens­land artist Julie Fra­gar to paint the por­trait.

“This will be the first por­trait of a woman premier to hang in Queens­land Par­lia­ment,” Ms Bligh said.
