One of my best Christmas presents this year actually came a week or two prior to the holiday, when my co-worker P- presented me with this piece of artwork. P- has a lot of contacts among military artists and, knowing my love of the Civil War, and especially Confederate history, he convinced one of them to paint this for me. The piece is by Fabien, a man best known for his work in French comic books.
What I really like about the piece is how much the figure resembles a 28mm miniature like the ones I am fond of painting. It is just waiting for a suitable frame.
