Extra Room is a profoundly emotional picture for me. The derelict thatched cottage had been abandoned several years earlier. The rather odd extra room with its slipping slates had been a country priest’s lodgings. I remembered a series of dreams I had had of a long-unnoticed extra room alongside my own house. It was my emotional inner place.
