Making The Call

 

 

This is a picture of me phoning the fertility clinic to request treatment using a donor egg.

I was doing okay with this painting until I wrote that last sentence! It feels painful to accept that this is the best way forward in my dream to have a child. Uttering those words makes it all the more real.

I found the tones, light and shading on the source photograph too difficult to work with, and so am a little disappointed with how my face turned out. I am happy with this painting in terms of the emotional experience that it is tapping in to.
