Margot Bogue feels there is nothing more exciting than "seeing" something to paint - stopping dead in her tracks and saying, “I’ve got to paint that!” Whether it is a city block she has viewed many times, or a bowl of oranges catching the sunlight on her kitchen table. She is compelled to paint as if she is seeing them for the first time.
