colourful mirror art portrait

I spied the sweetest, fragile looking elderly gentleman while in a doctors waiting room. He seemed like a perfect Icarus to me. A frail little bird, surrounded by medical ibis. I anticipated that it was only a matter of time before he would make a break for it and ascend into the skies.

Acrylic colour was airbrushed on 2 sheets of glass and mirror. They were framed together, each layer held slightly apart. I painted linework in enamel on the very top layer.

Two layers of 3mm glass plate over 3mm mirror and then locked into position with a frame.
