"Book Synopsis Tirthas shares Dana Westring's artistic, emotional, and intellectual foray to India. Through art and text, the author identifies the 41 locations that he visits and documents his reaction to his travels. Paintings are presented in a stylistic form that represents not only the architecture and landscape, but also how he feels each is best represented by medium, whether watercolor, pen and ink, or charcoal--all in an effort to convey the emotional essence of what he has encountered on his journey through this astonishing country. Review Quotes ""This book is the passionate encounter between a remarkable artist and his solitary journeys in India--a place to which he is aesthetically and spiritually tethered. In the end, Westring demonstrates that drawing is a form of meditation (Cartier-Bresson) and that great drawing makes the invisible intimate."" --Michael Rips About the Author Dana Scott Westring attended Hasting College in his native Nebraska and graduated with a BA in Studio Art in 1975.
