Hazelnut Torte with Beverly of Graustark

We’re leaving this morning for Quebec. I had been hoping to have this painting finished before leaving, but will have to settle for “almost finished.” Beverly of Graustark by George Barr McCutcheon is a novel I bought at a library book sale when I was seventeen and was absolutely enchanted with. It’s one of those Prisoner of Zenda type of improbable romances, involving tiny kingdoms in Eastern Europe and adventures in mountains. I’ve read it too many times to count.
