and the gallery
Welecome to RetouchPRO. Glad to see you stopped in.
Photography-wise, you do some very nice work.
Photo-art wise the ones I especially like are:
This one has a lot of potential...
Looks like a heavy dose of PS Dry Brush, which is a good place to start, but the mottled texturing on the skin (to me) is a little distracting.
I took the liberty of further manipulating your pic to give you an alternate perspective. (Done in Photoshop with the Impressionist plugin. E-mail me via my profile for details if you're interested.)

I'm on board with "what is (and isn't) art is in the eye of the beholder." That said to me the final result of a photo-to-painting conversion needs to have been sufficiently manipulated so there's no mistaking it with a not-so-well taken photo. That and $3 will buy you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
In focus and properly exposed photos capture a lot of detail and every single color. What usually distinguishes paintings is a simplified (not so detailed) image and a limited color palette.
You're off to a great start. May you have continued success with your photography and developing your own artistic manipulation style.
