Close up of one of the many works in progress in my studio

🎶 C'est la fête de la Musique ! 🎶
Impossible de ne pas vous parler de "SI ON DANSAIT... " de Rachel Joyce, un bel hommage aux vinyles et au pouvoir de la musique ! 😁
🎶 Dans les années 1980, à Londres, Frank vend des vinyles - pas question pour lui de vendre des CD ! Sa boutique est un gros bazar, mais Frank arrive toujours à y trouver LA bonne musique pour ses clients, nouveaux comme habitués... c'est son don, son "super-pouvoir".
Mais quand une femme mystérieuse s'évanouit devant son magasin, son monde bascule. Entre eux, il y a cette chanson, comme une évidence, qui ne demande qu'à être chantée, dansée. Mais Frank, trop occupé à aimer les autres, est incapable d'imaginer que quelqu'un puisse l'aimer en retour.
🎶 Histoire de musique, d'amitié, d'amour, de solidarité, "SI ON DANSAIT..." est un roman feel-good tendre, drôle et touchant... à lire absolument ! ❤️😉

Pour la fête de la musique, je ne pouvais pas ne pas choisir ce roman de Rachel Joyce qui parle de vinyles et des pouvoirs apaisants de la musique ! 🎶 #bookstagram #instabook #nouvellelecture #xoeditions #siondansait #racheljoyce

A little part of a commission I finished up yesterday!

Hallooo❤
Ich hab mir gestern "Das Geheimnis der Queenie Hennessy" gekauft😊 "Die unwahrscheinliche Pilgerreise des Harold Fry" habe ich vor ein paar Monaten schon gelesen und es hat mir auch ziemlich gut gefallen, deswegen freue ich mich schon auf den zweiten Teil😄 Jetzt lese ich aber erstmal noch "Das Schneemädchen"❄💙

The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce is a delightful story with a quirky cast of characters! I thoroughly enjoyed this story set in London about a man named Frank, who owns a record shop. Thank you @bookofthemonth for another great read! And thanks to my Dad for fostering my love of great music and never getting rid of his records! ❤️📚

Ainda não sei se gostei de ou odiei esse livro... 😃
Um tiozinho resolve sair caminhando do Sul ao Norte da Inglaterra e durante a viagens vai fazer descobertas a cerca de si e da sua vida, supostamente vai ter insights sobre o seu relacionamento com a família e o filho e blá blá blá.... Mas o relato não parece bem balanceado, demora muito no início e se apura ao final.
Médio. Bem no meinho 🤣

Une plongée dans les années 80 , à l'avènement des CD et la fin du vinyle, les grandes enseignes fleurissent, les petits commerces se ferment. L'âme des quartiers se meurt, la convivialité disparaît, l'indifférence s'installe, le repli sur soi...Franck, disquaire, lutte face aux geants du marketing, un amoureux de la musique, un homme avec ses failles et ses fêlures qui ressent les émotions de chacun et trouve la musique qui correspond à leurs états d'âmes. Mais il n'entend pas la sienne... "Franck était tellement occupé à aimer les autres qu'il était incapable d'envisager que quelqu'un l'aime en retour"

Les personnages prennent peu à peu de l'ampleur, Franck de la profondeur, même si je ne fus pas totalement transcendée, ce livre est une ode à la vie, l'amour, la musique et l'espoir que celle-ci transmet.
Tout au long du livre nous sommes baladés par un voyage musical qui rythme l'histoire intime de Franck et Lisa. Une Lisa évanescente, évanouie qui hante Franck, une histoire d'amour en filigrane qui s'étire sur plusieurs années. J'ai aimé me replonger dans ces notes inspirantes, inspirées que celles de Chopin, d'Aretha Franklin, David Bowie, les Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye...une piste musicale à écouter sans modération.
J'ai aimé l'idée de la musique qui correspond aux humeurs du moment, la musique qui console, celle qui nous porte, nous fait bouger, rire et partager...
J'ai aimé l'écriture fluide sans fioritures de l'auteure, les moments touchants quand la mère de Franck, Peg, lui raconte l'histoire des morceaux de musique, l'apprentissage, l'écoute, la palette d'anecdotes.
Ce livre offre un éveil à la curiosité, celle de la musique, la musique des amoureux, des âmes en peine, des cabossés...la musique de la vie...
...la musique a le pouvoir de réunir les coeurs, d'adoucir les mœurs... Merci à @xo_editions pour cette réception

Some little baby studies that are in the works

A improvável jornada de Harold Fry, de Rachel Joyce.

Esse livro foi uma grata surpresa, Rachel conta a história Harold que sai de casa apenas para mandar uma carta a uma amiga que está internada em estágio terminal do outro lado do país, quando mais que de repente ele resolve entregar em mãos, isso mesmo, ele corta o país de uma ponta a outra caminhando e pedindo por favor que sua amiga apenas o espere chegar.... Ele inicia uma jornada incrível como o próprio título diz...

Book 55: The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce
I approach love stories with a lot of caution. For me, they are something like a fantasy - most too unreal to believe. Yet, the concept of love, the concept of what one person can do for the other if they share the same emotions is something that fascinates me to no end. Joyce is a good writer and she conjures a warm and tender story about two hard-to-understand people. What I most liked about is the music lesson it offers. From classical to pop to rock, from Beethoven and Vivaldi to Aretha Franklin and the Sex Pistols - it is a delight to read about the compositions and songs discussed. As a couple, Frank and Ilse are lovely, perfect for each other, partners bound together by the love for music. It is a good book for the most part but the final segment was a disappointment. Joyce has barely acknowledged Frank in it, focusing only on Ilse's side of the story. Would have loved to know what Frank does during that period of 21 years he is away from Ilse. Would have loved to read more about his emotional state of the mind. The ending seems straight out a 90s rom-com and turns out to be very predictable. And that's why I won't give this one 5 stars.

I shared this on my personal Instagram already but I feel it’s appropriate to post on my art gram too not just because it’s one of my favorite pics with my dad but also because he has been one of my biggest supporters. He’s never made me doubt or question whether I should pursue my art and go after what I want. He builds me canvas bars so I don’t have to buy them, comes to my shows no matter how far away they are and always checks in with how my art is going. It is because of him that I started painting and uncovered my passion and purpose and he always encouraged me to stick with it; for that I can’t thank him enough. You are truly the best. Thank you for being you, love you dad ❤️

I know it’s the middle of June (already?!), but this is my May wrap-up ☺️ better late than never, right? 8/10 that I had wanted to read. Hoping for a further 5 during the remainder of June... I really need more time for reading!!!! 🤓📚 anyway, tomorrow is a new day and a new week with new opportunities 💕

When you start a book but don’t finish... this is my stack of books which at some point in the last few years I have started but have yet to finish. I’m not going to call them DNF’s as I think I will go back to them one day in the future but I do get annoyed that they are hanging over me! I think a lot of it has to do with the time when I started them and maybe not quite being in the right head space... that and the fact that most of them are whoppers with lots of pages! Do you have any books that you are yet to finish? And if you have read and finished any of these maybe you could persuade me to get back into one!
