Caroline Hesby – Nesting

Artist: Caroline Hesby
Title: Nesting
Grade: 11th grade
School: Acalanes High School
Teacher: Artwork created independently

This tiny lone leaf caught my eye when I noticed it cradling raindrops like a nest cradles eggs. I was drawn to the contrasting elements and textures of a natural object against man-made concrete. Yet all the elements seem to come to life with the sunlight – the concrete sparkling, raindrops glowing, and intricate patterns of the leaf accentuated.
