Happy New Year ! Cimpoe Gallery has settled into a new space and although it may be no larger than the previous space - and moving was just one long series of acute frustrations - we have finally settled in. Moving has been cathartic in many ways for us. We have been able to rethink and re-evaluate our approach to art and the pieces we create. Peter has just finished a new painting entitled Gladiators. This piece has been added to our new category Gladiators and Amazons. Perhaps no piece better exemplifies our resolution and desire for change more than this new introductory piece. Talk about muscles, brawn, humour and empowered friendship. Peter has a couple of fun ideas for the new Gladiators and Amazon series. We plan on trying our hand at selling at some fitness events and we think these pieces will do incredibly well there. We are also eyeing some Vancouver music festivals and craft shows. It is an exciting time for change! A little scary because change is always a little scary...but Gladiators aren't scared! They laugh in the face of death. Russell Crowe style. My name is Maximus !
