1967-11-22 Letter To Shirley(1127) From Rockmore - Mid show planning Israel trip

                                                                                                            Nov 22, 1967

Dear Shirley -

            Duplex may prove too expensive to get - very complex but Vic will try - I am going thru a period of great stress - real worried about show and must sell a big piece or else - but Vic is really behind me - he is too much - but he may give Peshkin the boot sheís a pain in the ass - and really goofed badly with the Times ad and several other things.  Well I will do my best to get thru this period but it wonít be easy and I canít work on anything big at all -

            Actually the Israel trip (3 wks.) would be a real shot in arm - be in Jerusalem at Xmas - Vic wants his brother Sam who is very fond of me to go with me as my governess which I need on a trip so I will be free to work.

            If anything big or good breaks I will call.  Take care and thank your private gods you are not the particular kind of painter I am forced to be by my compulsive brain  - in spite of momentary or occasional excursion from the central creative path like Israel series etc - I feel I am going deeper into the uncharted waters where a whole series of new data lies in wait for exposure and must be forced to the surface without the fisherman acquiring the bends!

            Take care and write a longer letter I like to hear from you - show is extended extra week to Dec 8 or 9 -

                                                                                    As ever


December 17, 1967 Postcard To Shirley (1127) From Rockmore (Israel)


            Just back from the Dead Sea at Sodom and boy is it Dead!  Did great still lives of dead vulture on sand and Wailing Wall series is going to be great - also will do big canvas of W.W. in N.Y. and suite of color lithoís so Israeli series ought to be 1st rate - but I donít like it here at all and trip is exhausting - done 14 major pages and filled Ĺ sketch book already - but thatís my lot I guess - take care and will call on return - Sam Potamkin is a doll

                                                            As ever


December 27, 1967 Postcard To Shirley (1127) From Rockmore (Athens)


            Finished 30 Israel pieces and now in Greece - Parthenon is incredible - am doing series of ink studies  here of great sculpture -

            Want to get home but trip is worth it.  I really did not like Israel one bit but series is terrific - trips always result in productivity no matter how painful -

            Take care and write N.Y.
