Appleseeds and Rainbow by Marie Campbell

Appleseeds and Rainbow
EGA Master Craftsman in Canvas, Step 5, 1985. The call for multiple appliques lent itself to depicting the legendary Johnny Appleseed, well-known in middle America for his initiative of planting apple trees in pioneer days. The imagery carries out the legendary motifs of cooking-pot hat, rainbow walker, befriended by animals in his travels. The stylized Johnny has an air of humorous good will to all.
