Drawn in 1959, pencil 6.75 x 7 in. An invitation came from Bryan Burford, Dean of Iowa State University Art Department to teach his postgraduate students for six months. He taught for four half-days a week and as he had arrived in January the sparkling white beauty of the snow and the friendliness and trustfulness pf a community where nobody ever locked anything persuaded him to unbend and relax. His first pay cheque soon arrived, $1,250. 'Stupendous ! he thought, 'I could go and buy a Ford Thunderbird'. He did three versions of Snow at Amana all 12 x 12 in.
