I selected various areas of the photo in quick mask mode, copied the selection(s) to a new layer and ran various texture effects on each one (wall, grass, house, leaves etc). I used the history brush to paint in a texture (done on the entire image) of the sky.

Used the history brush from the original photo state to paint back in the flowers and some gaps created by some of the rough selections.

You would ask Patricia. Anyway, in GIMP, I started out (on a duplicate layer) running Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast. I then set the result to GIMPressionist with graphite_2 preset (a few mods due to the small size of the photo). I then additionally sharpened the piece and set the Layer to Value. I flattened and opened the result in PS for some additional Impressionist blends (CarolH's Fine Brush that is). Can't remember the exact remaining steps (never do), but they involved some selective dodging and smudging and well as saturation/color adjustments.

Thank you for enjoying this photo. I'm enjoying ALL of your renditions.

DKCoats, no you wouldn't recognize Bentonville at all. Eureka has become something of an art community and a tourist place.

Kiska, the bride was hiding. I did see her mother though.

Hey, at least your car is considered a classic. Mine is just a 10-year-old Civic that spends most of its life on a dirt road.

It's pretty cool that no installation is required to use it though. By the way, most PS filters will work in GIMP (the previews will not necessarily though unfortunately).
