Love Letter to Courtenay
One of the things I’m most grateful for is where I live.
I grew up in Comox and my husband and I have lived near Courtenay (in the regional district) for eighteen years. We have a strong base of family and like-minded friends here. The surrounding area is the physical manifestation of all the things that resonate most strongly with me: mountains, ocean, rivers, large trees, trails, space and quiet. I also find that many people here are open minded, have a strong willingness to support each other and value their community. I think it is the combination of all these special things that give a place “heart”; they need to be protected and valued.
As described by a fellow valleyite, this painting is “a love letter to Courtenay”.
