Falling Autumn Leaves – Wood Art
Matisse Inspired Sculpture
Falling Autumn Leaves is an arc shape sculptural form inspired by the Matisse leaves that are in many of his paintings and also the scissor cut-paper collages of leaves he made when he was no longer able to paint. This piece is turned on a lathe and then cut, carved and painted. This is one of several Matisse inspired pieces. He is one of my favorite painters because his forms are simple and elegant and no one can draw a curve as clean as he did.
This item will be a great addition to any art collection. If you collect art or are starting out Falling Autumn Leaves belongs in your collection. Picture it as a centerpiece on a shelf. Surely it will be a conversation piece. My signature, Alan Adler is on the bottom.
Autumn Leaves will make a wonderful gift for that special person in your life. You know that wood is the Fifth Wedding Anniversary Gift. Maybe a Birthday Gift, Housewarming Gift, Artist Gift
This arc is perfect as a Display Piece. It throws great shadows with the proper lighting.

Care for your Falling Autumn Leaves
Keep out of direct sunlight
Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
