Cloud Dance - Thomas Locker

Voyager Books, Harcourt, 2000
Paper $7.00
32 pages
Rating: 5
Oils on canvas

On one page a gorgeous oil painting of sky and foreground. On the facing page, one beautifully-written sentence of explanation

"Nighttime clouds/with silver edges/shimmer in the moonlight."
"High, wispy clouds/race/in the autumn wind."
Mmmmmmmm, mmmmm. Love it all.

The paintings and the writing are equally gorgeous. The book ends with an information page about clouds.

Check out Mountain Dance and Water Dance, too!
