Martha Washington, First Lady... Hot Lady
The image of the first lady of our country are from portraits painted after her death showing a grandmother type of older woman we can all relate to, very humbling. But using surviving records and computerized age-regression imagery we are able to generate a portrait of Martha visualizing her in her mid 20's. Michael Deas’s portrait imagining what a young Martha Washington looked like. Deas is a noted realist painter you’ve seen his work without knowing it as he created the current Columbia Pictures logo as well as recent U.S. stamps commemorating movie stars like Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Marilyn Monroe.
