I show my work reverse to creation time. The first drawing (below) says Georges Braque is staying with me. I have moved on, away from Braque, because this drawing. My bird has wings down, Braque's birds always have wings above their torso, mostly way up! Is this a half-full versus half-empty thing? Drawing No.2 is extremely original. I see no Braque influence there. Perhaps a bit of Rembrandt. I am thinking of Rembrandt's great crucifixion etching, reworked through multiple states, and ending as shown below. It is the strongly drawn vertical lines crossed by diagonal lines that I see in common, in Rembrandt's etching and in my drawing No.2.
