Glass Door Knob

Can't remember where I found this, but it's been in my archive of photos for some time. I've always liked glass door knob because of the way they capture and reflect the colors in a room. Plus there's something about the way the glass "feels" when one goes to open a door. This is a 5" x 7", watercolor, pen & ink, on Fabriano paper.

My Butler grandparents' farmhouse in Michigan was a treasure trove of mysteries, all held close behind doors with glass knobs like this. It would be cool to find a mother lode supply of them and have them here at home ... The color palette in this one evokes Andrew Wyeth - great job!

Actually, finding them isn't that hard. There are dealers in architectural salvage who sell these by the truckload. I've also seen them at antique places. I had them in one of my TN homes and remember them in my paternal grandmother's home on Va's Eastern Shore. Funny you should mention grandparents. In thinking of a title for this piece (for an upcoming show) I had actually thought of the rather oblique, "Grandma's Room," because that was the memory evoked.
