I want people to feel the importance of place, to want to go there and experience it. I want them to notice something new or see the familiar in a new light. I want to engender affection for the creation and the thoughtful additions to it. I might show the ugly side of our abuse of it. But as Wendell Berry said in his Jefferson Lecture, It All Turns On Affection, "affection involves us entirely." if we don't have an underlying affection for people and places, we will not be moved to care for them. Landscape Painting can do this, and keep people and places in our imagination, and perhaps hint at the long history and culture associated with place.
