He was a prolific painter, continuing into his 80s, and worked in oil, watercolor, and ink and depicted desert and mountain scenes and also Mexican villages.
Mr. Thurston's paintings are displayed in the Congressional office building in Washington, D.C. and New Mexico's governor's office. Mr. Thurston was the recipient of the Mentors of Today Award given by the Texas House of Representatives and an award from the National Society of Arts and Letters.
