A Gift To You!

Yesterday was my birthday!

Today, I am feeling like I would like to do something nice for one of my two readers.

The first person to leave a comment here on this photo:

Will receive a FREE, hopefully fantastic, portrait! TA-DA!

All you have to do is be the first to leave a comment on the above photo, and you get a free portrait. It could be of you, your kids, your dog, your champion roses, whatever you want!

Well, there it is.

Have at it!


  1. Am I first? That's a really cool thing to do Steve. You're so generous. Happy Birthday!!!

    I would love for you save the portrait for the next commentor, though. So hopefully it can drum up some business for you!

    Love the pic, and I really love your watermark. I have been contemplating creating a new one, that goes across the image as more of a protection from copying. Any suggestions? Do you know of any tutorials? Right now I use my logo as a brush, but would love something more like yours.

  2. Hallo!

    Next commenter you say! Ha!

    I'll go with your suggestion, but if i don't get another comment you're gonna be stuck with it!

    As far as a watermark, this one was very basic. The white stripe was just a separate layer which I adjusted the opacity down to make it transparent. Really very simple.

    We should exchange links. I'll be able to provide you with at least one additional reader for the ole' blog!
