Snow Laden Trees was purchased by the owners from Hibbard at his Ledgendsea Gallery in Rockport. The composition reveals his gift for finding beauty in an otherwise ordinary sight for any New Englander, a gathering of pines heaped with newly fallen snow, here rendered with both warmer tones of pink and orange and cooler strokes of aqua blue and purple.
