The black and white image was a glass light pendant that hung in our lounge room at the time. It was an old, but very beautiful light. In this photo it looks like the petals of a flower – or a skirt, or a dress.
If you tip the room sideways, or upside down, it might have been a flower growing out of a wall. All it takes is a change of perspective. Hence, the wallflower.
The illustration is based on an intaglio print Peter made at the Australian Print Workshop. Below is a poster based on the original label graphics.
