They call her Nietzsche

Perhaps she has a lot on her mind at 12 months of age.......

So here is how her portrait began, oils on the hand-cut cedar block:

She was wearing the floppy straw hat I bought for her. Her family said it made her "look like one tourist," and laughed. She was trying to pull it off with her left hand.

But I decided to leave that hand out in the final painting.
