The Merton Arts Festival continues until this Sunday. You can see some of my paintings there. As I know most of you didn’t choose to cross the Channel this weekend, here’s a glimpse for you below: With PERL, we had a lot of fun doing some fluid art experiments. To be renewed! Thanks to the framers team for their hard work despite the busy schedule and last minute solicitations, festival oblige! Be creative! xx Malika Smith

Drawing made for my amazing colleague Vass, as she decided to change career to teach science. Good luck to her and to all the teachers for their return from the summer holidays! Lots of love, Malika Smith
To those who have traveled a long time: what impressed you the most when you returned? Lots of love, Malika Smith
Life is short, quickly sort it and avoid wasting time… Have a good tidying! 😉 Malika Smith
It’s been more than two years since I tried to publish a note about my return from Australia (Yeah, it was ages ago…), but every time I would work on the sketches, I’d stop at some point, finding an excuse or a so-called priority, not to put myself in it. And then it would never come out… I finally found a way to finish this damn note (in a somewhat expeditious mode, I reckon…). Metaphorical dirty summary of a period not very funny… Malika Smith
I can’t help remembering him again in the garden, teaching me the basics of gardening. He, dexterous, the gesture assured, his hands well placed on his rake (which was twice my size at that time…), observing me with a benevolent eye, while I, clumsy from all of my 3 years of age , was trying very hard not to stain my dear little varnished shoes in the soil… I still had a long way to go at that time…. So I painted this scene, based on a picture I like. Goodbye grandpa. M.S.
Hope you had an amazing Valentine’s Day last night! Sending you rainbowy hugs, Malika Smith
