Thank you so much Brian.

Edmonton, AB - Canada

My thoughts go out to you and your family, Rory. Its a lovely Picture.

Yelm, WA - United States

I'm glad you like it Brian...Thank you! I just gave a framed copy of this to my sister for Mother's Day....our first since our mom passed away two months ago. This was the photo I put up at the funeral...one I took of her many, many years ago.

Edmonton, AB - Canada

That is a really cool Picture, Rory, the rain effects affecting the affect!

Yelm, WA - United States

Thank you Colleen! This photo is my very favorite of my mother....so amazing to see her like this...a completely unguarded, spontaneous moment. It's important I think, at some point in our lives, to be able to start to see our parents as the unique individuals that they are...not just as our parents. For me, this photo does that.

Vevey, Va - Switzerland

Touches my heart. Beautiful work, Rory.

Tina, I am so pleased and greatly appreciate you featuring "Feeling Rain" in the Artists Best Five Artworks Group! Thank you!

Gary, IN - United States

Feeling your heart for her...just like your title...about mom, always extreme feelings have...sad and joy....., wish she is always feeling better and happy Rory..! f/v.

Rory Sagner replied:

Mihyoun, you are so right. It seems that the most important relationships in our lives are always filled with extreme polarities. I suppose that is why we can learn so much from them if we are willing. I am grateful to have learned that love is always the common denominator, even when it is not expressed as we would hope...from them or even from ourselves.

Oh Rosy...you made my day with your lovely comments! Thank you!!!

Storybrooke, ME - United States

Very special indeed, there is a wonderful enchantment about this photograph. V/F

Rory Sagner replied:

Thank you very much Bob! I am so happy that you felt that enchantment too. There is something in this that captivates me...maybe just seeing that unguarded moment...which shows me a whole other side of my Mom I did not really get to see very much.

Your feelings show themselves so clear in this photo. Love how you processed it. It is true, we always are young inside, even if our bodies get older and mor fragile. Sending love to you and your dear mother!

Thank you so much Gun...your comments are warm and lovely!

and those tears shine through, rory!

Lincoln City, OR - United States

Rory, this is really special! She doesn't look 82, or was this taken earlier? At any rate, it's beautiful!

Rory Sagner replied:

Thank you so much Vonelle! Yes, I think she was in her mid to late 40s in this photo. My Mom never looked her physical age...and we always joked about how she never got any older after her 36th Birthday. We did it like bra sizes after that: 36A, 36B....and so on...guffaw!!!

Tucson, AZ - United States

love how you have used your medium to keep this moment eternal! well done, rory! vote

Rory Sagner replied:

Good morning Marlene! It's like finding buried treasure...some of my early 35 mm black and white photos of my family. Working with these has filled my heart with so much love and so many memories...it's elicited tears of joy and much laughter! I plan to write more about my mom in the description soon, but am going to send her this to remind her of the being that still lives inside of her...even though she is just about to turn 82 and is dealing with the harsh realities of physical ailments and living in a nursing home
