‘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.
