The personal touch

BY jane, ON Wednesday, April 20, 2011

I discovered this article and quiz from the New York Times. It reveals how the human element adds an ingredient almost inexplicably engaging. Since I am a musician as well as an artist, and I believe “All Art is One Art,”  I found the findings predictable, yet thrilling, since it promotes my philosophy that nothing can replace the human element. Our motto on our contact page states, “We prefer the personal touch.” In music, hand calligraphy, and gift giving, why not add the personal touch. May we suggest a Mother’s Day gift this year?  We will hand calligraph a name and hand paint a flower color of your choice.
