Thanks much!!
Impressionist is a filter that's a part of a program called Image Composer that's included with Microsoft Front Page 98. FP98 is no longer available commercially, but if you're into eBay shopping, FP98 comes up for auction there on a regular basis. If you're not into eBay, contact me via PM.

Unfortunately I have slept quite a few times since creating this. What I was trying to do was to smooth out the areas into blocks of color. I used the (no longer available) PhotoEffex Background Blur plugin for that. You could probably use Smart-Blur, Edge-Preserving Smooth, buZZ, or something along these lines for a similar effect.

Next, I used Xero Graphics Irridium (sp?) filter to add the coloring. You can get all of Xero's plugins for free at:

I believe Irridium is in Set 4, but won't make any guarantees.

Now, Danny pointed you in the right direction for Microsoft's impressionist plugin. I love that plugin! It is perfect for applying single strokes of color on the picture.

That's as much as I can remember. Perhaps another time I can give you more detais on another creation...
