The view from my studio on the grounds of Mendota Mental Health Institute is peaceful and serene. The spacious grounds are green in the summer and white in the winter with a view of Lake Mendota peeking through the trees on three sides. There are many Indian Effigy Mounds – one large mound right along the side of the studio. One day a week I enjoy volunteer teaching an art class to a group of men in the Forensics Unit. It is very rewarding.
