A selection of artists from Crossing Borders have been invited into unexpected workplaces in Peebles: Castle Warehouse, Grandison's Plasterworks; Renwick and Weir joiners and Go Ape amongst others. For me, it's Nomad Beat, the charity-run music school. We've to find inspiration in these venues and use it to make new artworks. With a ceramicist, a jeweller and a couple of textile workers as well as painters, the resulting exhibition in the Tweeddale Gallery in early 2015, should be worth a look. We're pleased to have support from Scottish Borders Museums and Galleries services and from Peebles Creative Place.

I've now done a number of "people playing instruments" paintings so it's time to explore how to make a different visual response to music.

What I hope is coming through is rhythm, in the repetition of shapes;

harmony in the use of colour;

and an arrangement of elements that holds together in a satisfying way;

What do you think?
