“’67 I was on the Bowery, which is Spring Street. My building was concurrent to both streets and E-I-R, there’s an E missing there. That is the year that I had my first representation in Ireland, in an exhibit called ROSC. And since I am partly of Irish descent I thought that was worth noting. And Mother, I finished the Mother and Father painting in ’67, and that’s it.”
