Charlotte's Skull

"Charlotte who?", you might ask. Charlotte is the 13 year old daughter Jeff Coffin. Jeff is a proud dad who wanted to submit this watercolor painting he received for a Christmas gift from her. Charlotte's model was a real skull that Jeff owns.

I like that this is modeled after a real human skull.  The imperfections in the teeth and the bone structure are testaments to the fact that none of us are perfect, even down under skin level.  Luckily, the physical only limits us in our perception of beauty.  If we can learn to see past that, and into the inner makings of each other, we can realize that it's all of those imperfections that make each one of us wonderfully unique,  not the physical casing that houses our souls. Thanks for the reminder, Charlotte!
