17-04: Door Knobs Mandala

Door Knobs Mandala to Color by me (Maureen Frank)

Download Mandala of the Week #4

This week we look at the mandala-like shapes of door knobs. Inspired by a vintage ceramic crackled and metal door knob, I created this week’s mandala. It contains both symmetry and asymmetry components…very left/right brain stuff. My heads already popping with ideas for painting it.

From Handsome Handles about the history of door knobs:

Door knobs have a very interesting history. Although it is difficult to provide an exact date of when door knobs first came into use, the first documentation of the invention of a door knob was in 1878. The U.S. Patent Office received a submission made for improvements on a door-closing device by an African American inventor named Osbourn Dorsey. Door knobs and door handles are now a vital part of modern doors!

This Week…

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence. ~ Confucius

Happy Coloring!

joyfully,
