A long-time artist and art director, McCafferty said she started teaching the courses a few years ago after moving to the area with her husband in 1994. "I started after the A.C. Moore store opened," she said.

charlestown@herald-mail.com SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Diana Suttenfield's paintings are looking up, way up. Suttenfield has been a professional artist since about 1970, and many of her works have focused on landscape scenes in Jefferson and Washington counties. Suttenfield said she believed she had developed her own style, but she was looking for something more. She said she wanted more of an emphasis on skies in her pastel paintings, but the black paper she used as a base for her works was not conducive to creating the scenes she envisioned.

kevinc@herald-mail.com Donna Bingaman's upstairs studio is quiet, not to mention a bit steamy since an air conditioner in the corner is silent. Vertical blinds are drawn to obstruct a bright afternoon sun. The room is awash in canvases in several stages of completion; many of the Waynesboro, Pa., resident's subjects have hands clasped in prayer, a nod to her faith. Hanging from a bookshelf next to the door are dozens of ribbons won at various regional competitions, a dazzling array of purples, whites, reds, greens and yellows that rivals her palette.

BELISLE / Staff Writer GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Melissa Gayman Ball dips a tiny paintbrush into a dab of acrylic paint and gingerly applies it to a turkey feather.

WAYNESBORO, PA. By RICHARD F. BELISLE waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, PA. - When Neville West sees the Crucifixion, he sees a cleaned-up Savior, an image that leaves out the blood, violence and horror of the way Christ was put to death. West, 72, of Waynesboro, saw actor-director Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ," "When I saw the movie, I saw what Christ endured in the flesh as it really happened," West said. "It moved me. " The crucifixion scene in the movie inspired him to paint a realistic version of Christ on the cross, how it would have looked in real life, he said.
