If I could paint, this is what I would have done - maybe
This is a filtered version of a close-up of a fan of leaves of an aloe plant (Aloe plicata, I think). I applied one of Filter Forge's thousands of user created filters, one called Sketchy Painting, added a layer of Photoshop's Accented Edges filter, and added a frame, the outer part of which I treated with a variety of effects. Although I like the Filter Forge filter, I absolutely hated how excruciatingly long it took to apply it, at least when running Filter Forge as a Photoshop plug-in.
