Dance in the Clouds
Shenshen Dou, MS

From the artist: “On an early spring evening, in a typical thermal inverse weather pattern in Portland, OR, the fog is rising, the sun is setting, and the sky is turning a pinkish hue. I set my camera on a tripod to try to shoot the snowy mountain beyond the tree line, when suddenly a flock of birds appeared and gave this tranquil scene a poetic mood.”

Ms Dou worked as a molecular biologist and is an artist living in West Linn, OR. More of her artwork
can be seen on the cover of this issue and in other issues of The Permanente Journal,
