Hello Kathleen and Everyone!
This is an interesting sign, and your writing is getting better and
better! It is really great to share with you...
You are correct about the arrow...It is placed underneath the right
hand, because the right hand is moving down. Excellent placement!
And it is correct to place the dot at the bottom of the arrow, since
the closing happens at the end of the movement. Good placement!
And the choice of handshapes are fine and well done.
The choice of the Rub symbol made it clear to me, that I had mis-read
the sign, however, and you know why? Because your arrow is so long,
that it looked like the movement moved down so far that the hand was
out of the cupped left one...in other words, the movement arrow
paints a path in space, and if it is long, it looks like a very long
movement, so the arrow needed to be shorter to show that the right
hand did not leave the cupped left hand...so the length of the arrow
has meaning...it tells us how long the movement is...
I will now write a few choices for you to show you, and then I look
forward to your comments...so see next message...Val ;-)
