Reflections, Seeking Focus

This watercolor is based on a still life, but attempting to escape reality. It isn't too literal, scale and space are distorted. [I need a camera to show the whole painting,this is a scan of the center] To me, there is a bit of a "mirror" feeling. The red pear on the right side is "reflected" as a pear bi-sected on the left of the painting (mostly missing here).
The bird (from a figurine, great for posing and painting from different angles) seems to be preening in front of it's reflected image.
I WAS able to get a photograph of the full painting on the sunporch....available light.
