...thought i'd try out the process mentioned mentioned in the first post here by gillyh...and then played with the technique a bit.
Wonderful execution. I always admire those who feel free to "color outside the lines" on these types of things. Exploring and stretching the envelop is a good thing, yielding this lovely piece of art.

Did you print it by chance?

thanks danny

yes, i made a print... and then promptly gave it away i've still got it on the computer, though.

the initial reason i altered the process a bit was that my resolution and file size were fairly large and the color variation wasnt as great. thus, the stated process didnt have as much effect as in the tutorial. i also use paint shop pro 7.xx, but it just wasnt coming up as dramatic as the tut. so, you do what they say, but after that it's time to get creative

here's a couple more with different treatments after the stuff in the tut. the first is even more oil looking to me. i added a couple of layers, one was a texture layer and the other was a criss-cross of the window blinds effect, but in a very tight pattern and almost completely translucent. this was to help simulate the look of being on a canvas. i also added a levels lightening layer and a contrast layer.

then, to spread the 'oil' around a bit, i added a brushstroke layer and simply adjusted the opacity down till it looked pretty good. and that was that.

on the 2nd one, to get the water color look, i added a 'colored edges' layer, which combined with the brushstroke layer, spreads stuff around even more, giving it more of a water color look.

kinda cool

That one turned out particularly well... A very convincing effect.

thanks danny.

yeah, i thought that one came out pretty well also.

and here's the original directly from the negative scanner, just to give you an idea of where this was and what had to be done to make it more presentable.
