“It can be just as revealing and magical drawing a street-corner scene as it is
chasing an idea around the studio and wrangling it into a painting. And when
working in the studio, I make sure to keep myself inspired and mindful of the
great art of past and present, and cultures, and philosophies, sitting on my
bookshelves.” —Despina

My son, James, working on a
sand castle in Aruba. Rather than
taking a picture, I opted to record
the moment with a drawing.

HALL, watercolor
The Main Street in Disney World is a
reflection on a special time in American
history. It’s a living museum, and there is
much to be learned from it. Drawing and
painting there is a delight.
O RCH IDS, watercolor, pastel
Flowers are the perfect subject for
watercolors. The way the colors blend into
each other on the petals may seem
impossible to capture, but a little water
goes a long way for that particular task.

Margaret Hurst
“I believe in energy. It lls us; it lls the universe. I appreciate the energy that
exists in all things. It is my joy and pleasure as a visual artist to nd and
identify the individual energy that every being, place, and thing possesses and
to manifest that particular energy into a visual form or entity.”—Margaret
