Just a few months ago, this courtyard, in Scotland’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital’s national spinal unit, was grey with just concrete square blocks on the ground with weeds poking through.
Now it is a welcoming area with shelters, known as pods.
Below, you can see the large pod I was working in on Wednesday, where I was joined by patients and their visitors escaping the wards.
I’ll be there next Wednesday too, and I’ll post my painting when it’s finished.
Above is one of the 3 pods, below are the remaining two and the wonderful ripple effect in the ground around the fountain.
