Schwarzenegger Reveals Giant Portrait During Rare Appearance
Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger lifted the curtain on his official portrait
The portrait, which will eventually hang on the third floor, was done by Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein, a realist who previously painted Andy Warhol and John F. Kennedy.

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger lifted the curtain on his official portrait on Monday, revealing a photograph-like giant image of the onetime bodybuilder standing in front of the official California seal.

Schwarzenegger revealed the portrait at a ceremony in the state Capitol in which he made a rare appearance in Sacramento nearly four years after he left office.

The portrait, which will eventually hang on the third floor, was done by Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein, a realist who previously illustrated Andy Warhol and John F. Kennedy.

Schwarzenegger, a movie star before he ran for governor in the chaotic recall election of 2005, said he owes all his successes in life to California, which he called a mythical place "where nothing is impossible." As a boy growing up in Austria, he dreamed about the state, he said.
