Winter and Bonnard's Comment

Winter is starting to fade away, so I'll try to get a few winter paintings done as quickly as possible.  The above is a 9x12 pastel of the view at the top of Stratton Road looking towards the Taconics.

I have been puzzling over Bonnard's comment that everyone would be a painter if they knew how to look and see.  I'm not sure that I agree with that.  If one sees, how does one go from that to feeling compelled to paint?
