Sure, former Governor George Pataki's portrait is still being completed, but what about one of 18th century governor John Jay? The AP reports that 15 ex-governors' portraits are not in the Capitol's Hall of Governors. Besides Pataki and Jay, the missing include Enos Throop, Williams Marcy, John Dix (the one who served in 1873-1874, not the one who served 1911-1912), William Sulzer, Mario Cuomo (who never provided a portrait) and our most recent former governor, Eliot Spitzer. Here's a list of NY State's governors--and information on visiting the Capitol.
