SACRAMENTO-

An image of former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's then-wife, Maria Shriver, was scrubbed from his gubernatorial portrait, a source at the Capitol confirmed Thursday.

A smudge on the former governor's lapel is the only sign Shriver may have been part of the official portrait.

The portrait was finished while Schwarzenegger was still in office. Shriver's face appeared on a lapel pin in the painting, but a FOX40 source says that pin is now just a smudge.

“We haven’t talked about lapel pins and I don’t know anything about it,” one Capitol tour guide said.

Neither the portrait, nor the story of the Shriver smudge, are official parts of the Capitol tour yet.

“Honestly, they could have painted over it a little better,” Patti Aresty, a visitor from the east coast, said Thursday.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver split in 2011, after 25 years of marriage, following revelations that Schwarzenegger fathered a son with the couple's one-time housekeeper.
