What is your favorite gift you have ever given? TVR: For me the best gifts come from the heart. One of my favorites was a pastel painting I made for my husband. I hadn’t drawn like that in years, but one weekend I set myself up with pastels at the table and the work flowed from me. I recreated the landscape where he proposed to me in France a few years prior.
