Lorenzo Ross is my husband and we sell prints of his original art work in the PsychicUnicorns etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/PsychicUnicorns
Lorenzo has his own room where he creates his art. We didn’t rush into living together, and when we were planning what we would need in our first apartment together years ago, we knew we would each need separate work rooms. Enter the glories of 3 bedroom apartments. We are now in our second apartment together, and once again we have a 3 bedroom apartment. We have our bedroom, Lorenzo’s art room or his “office” as we now enjoy calling it, and my home office “reading room” where I read clients.
If I ever need to go into Lorenzo’s office to ask him something, I always knock on the door first, and generally wait for his response. I think energetic boundaries are important to one’s creative process, so I always respect that his office is his alone.
We are fortunate to be able to have separate rooms to help us with boundaries, but I think there are many ways for people who live together to respect each other’s creative boundaries. As a psychic reader I have read couples who do not allow each other enough alone time. Time alone, whether in a separate room with the door closed, or in the same room undisturbed is a great way to nurture and allow the creative process for people in a home. Lorenzo needs time to draw, and I need time to meditate. We each need different environments for our work, and time and respect from each other to allow this.
Here’s to hoping that your creative process gets a metaphorical, or literal room of its own.
