How much are we willing to wait before making a dream?I do not know but in recent years, thanks to your enthusiasm, I believed it was possible to give form and substance to a desire that I carried in by time.
From this moment, I can think of have reached that point of no return where every soldier in the painting is more a part of me that reaches the army of my passions, the dream of a child who meets the frustrations of an adult.
No, this is my first French Army and, from now on, nothing will ever be the same.
|A first look at the battalions.|
|A great effort that you have joined some friends (even relatives ...) with free gifts really exceptional.|
|Italeri mon Amour!|
|French official painted by the master Luciano Leni, with friends like these ...|
|Grenadiers and Voltigeurs: second to right is a grognard paint by my Brother Nicola.|
|Moreno Bianchi, will be with me to Waterloo for the bicentenary. These are his courassiers, simply magnificent!|
|This is his light artillery, as you see friends haven't left me alone|
|Beyond my line there is, in red hat, "Felice", my wife's gnome, no fear, in his heart is a brave french grognard!|
|Forward to the bayonet|
|A long line.|
|Ready to advance behind the cavalry.|
Now I get to paint antagonists: the Russians Army of Tsar Alexander. This adventure began for "game", it is appropriate to say, and continues for several months. Appreciate my good will, I'm only (or almost ...) and I need to do on both sides, but now we're almost to end and the two armies are pawing.I hope you enjoyed this effort, a tribute also to return the enthusiasm that give me your post.
