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.
