Shaped Vision, Clutter Pastel

This is another view of the same tree with the arching trunk in the early morning.  Trees on the other side of the canal are reflected in the canal background so they all seem to be on the same plane. 

More words from Sue Ferguson Gussow: "It is from the humble particulars of our daily lives that larger abstractions may be formulated.  In our observations we are confronted by a visual world of vast complexity and density.  To reduce this agglomeration of color, texture, detail, and overlap to coherent imagery, we shape what we see."  This is what she wrote when introducing clutter drawings,  drawings made of some found site,  left as is, which one "shapes" into coherence.  I suppose this is my clutter pastel.
