A Pear Story

Thanks Adam,
I really like this writing. I was working solely with the SignPuddle rather than augmenting it. I like the rub with the arrows connected to the moving hand. 

Maybe 2¢ has gone up because of inflation? ;-)

Clear writing moves business forward.

I would use a brush rather than a rub, because the dominant hand does lose contact with the non-dom.  Other than that, yes, looks good to me.

I guess I should come out of the wood works for a short while to put in my two cents. :-)

Cherie Wren, I agree that we can't honestly say that someone is wrong in their writing without some investigation of whether it be regional variation, individual variation, or even writing style. I have seen a lot of sign variations partly because that is my field of study as well as it being my native language that I live, breath, read, write, sign, analyze, and teach everyday. I will be the first to admit, however, that even I haven't seen every variation out there because new ones pop up all the time. Having said that, let's have a continuation of discussing. :-)

Kelly Jo, I personally don't see anything with the arrows in the writing that Charles chose, which was written by Natasha. I am not sure if I understand what you are trying to say, though. You say that the arrows should be going to the left rather than the right? Would this writing be what you suggest?

Or are you meaning this writing?

And, Cherie, you mentioned another way of signing it. Is this close to what you meant?

Now, if I were writing this sign myself, I would have chosen a different palm orientation for the non-dominate hand. In fact, that is the only difference that I would personally make to Natasha's writing in SignPuddle. (Ok, maybe I would change the placing of some of the symbols, but it is basically the same. GRIN)

Maybe 2¢ has gone up because of inflation? ;-)
