CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - When Melanie Brownsmith became pregnant, she wanted to continue painting, but without having the chemicals around her or her children. So she turned to digitally painting photographs, using Corel Painter and Corel Paint Shop Pro. Brownsmith had been a wedding photographer and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from then-named Shepherd College, so she combined photography and painting. Several of Brownsmith's landscapes and cityscapes will be on display in the Jean Heiler Gallery at the Old Opera House, 204 N. George St., from Friday, Oct. 24, through Sunday, Nov. 2. Some of the works are painted photographs and some are unaltered photographs.
