April 25, 1971 Letter to Shirley from Rockmore (1 W 67, NYC) enclosed in Civil War book
Here is the new Book - 21 “Civil War” series and 5 miscellaneous pieces all done in N.Y. - I expect to go on with Civil War theme and on a larger scale possibly later -
I think the overall series, even tho a few pages as always, are less completely successful than others, speaks for itself.
I will be ready with another book late in summer and will let you know then that is ready -
Haven’t heard from TIME mag yet - I did 4 portrait version of Gov. Carter and in the 1st sitting dropped a tube of (open!) Ultramarine blue on the white rug of the mansion’s living room thus continuing my almost unbroken record of incompetence in all but painting -
I hope it works out tho because an occasional TIME cover would be great for me as well as income -
Any way take care of yourself and try and write and let me know how you like this latest.
As ever, your tired anti-pop-rock-aesthetic-hermit-friend
