Labour of Love

‘Labour of love’ A self-portrait, oil on canvas.

It’s impossible to compress into words what this journey is like, so I have attempted to capture some of the feelings in a painting. As always, I’m never happy with my finished work. I didn’t want to show it to anyone but plucked up the courage to post it on a private fertility forum where I openly discuss lots of issues with other women. They felt that this image summed up a lot of their feelings and assured me that it would strike a chord with¬†those going through Infertility, miscarriage and child loss. My hope is that it can also give others an insight into what their friends and family may be going through.
