As an artisan, Judy Williamson needs only to look outside her window for inspiration. From her house sitting majestically atop a hill, she has a direct view of South Mountain and the Washington Monument and is surrounded by a rural canvas painted this time of year in burnished golds, browns and reds. It's a setting that offers few distractions, making her creativity seem effortlessly achieved. It helps, of course, that she loves what's she's doing. And for Williamson, that love is working with her hands.

The fall season hasn't even officially started yet, and already a show has been canceled. The WB has pulled the plug on its unscripted/game-show hybrid "Studio 7" after, appropriately enough, seven episodes. Thursday's episode will be the show's last. "Studio 7" debuted to a miniscule 1.65 million viewers in late July, and its ratings in the 9 p.m. Thursday spot haven't budged since. The WB also says it's moving the premiere of "Drew Carey's Green Screen Show" back a few weeks, to Oct. 7. The show, which combines improv comedy with computer animation, had been scheduled to debut Sept.

Scott Cawood peered closely at his sculpture - the figure of a woman - and tinkered with the elbow. He looked intent, focused. "This is about the third assemblage I've had on her elbow," he said. "I've taken two of them off. I didn't like them. " Cawood, 59, a sculptor who works in metal, is working on a commission - oversize figures of a man and a woman lifting up a baby. The figures are lifelike and muscular, but semi-mechanical. They're intended to show a synthesis of natural and mechanical parts.

The next time you watch Pixar's Golden Globe-winning animated film “Brave,” you might want to pay close attention to the scenes with hundreds of characters in the background. Hagerstown native Hemagiri “Hemu” Arumugam might have had a hand in putting them in there. Arumugam, a 2006 graduate of North Hagerstown High School, estimates there are about 60 scenes in “Brave” in which he dropped animated characters into the background. He even had his favorite. “There was short, stout, kind-of-fat guy. I always tried to put him in as much as I could because I really liked him,” Arumugam, 24, said during a telephone interview from Pixar Studios in Emeryville, Calif.
