Exciting times are ahead; this February 26th from about 5pm to 9pm (thorough details will come later…) we (Tammy Schmidt, Clinical Herbal Therapist and Natasha Henderson, artist) will be participating in Nuit Blanche as part of the Montreal High-Lights Festival!

Our objective: to paint in an unusual way, using nature within the city. We will be painting using natural pigments; pigments that are not synthetic nor harmful for the earth. The body of the paint, as well as the canvas, will be snow and maybe ice. We will invite the public to add to our Snow-Painting, and to learn a little about the natural, herbal-based pigments that we will be using.

This project will be the second joint-venture of “fleurbain”; the first being the Herbal Creativity Spa Weekend: Valentine workshops planned for February 11-12. Needless to say, Tammy and Natasha are excited to be able to share their knowledge about herbalism and the arts, and add to the cultural life in Montreal!

Thanks to Guest Contributor Greg Howes for these stunning photographs of the recent snowfall in Wales. Greg has a fascinating story that will be featured here, soon! Keep looking…

Every month at Fleurbain we are offering our Facebook “likers” the chance to upload an image, with a short description about it, to our wall. We will add the image and photographer’s credits and story about the picture to this site. Eternal immortality is the best reward.

Our theme for this month is: Fire and Ice. Do you have some wonderful shots that could fit into this theme? Do you want to wander out into the snow or hot, hot sun and take a pic to share? Here’s one to start us off:

So picture it, get in the right frame of mind, and give it a shot… and tell your friends! Have some fun this December with Fire and Ice.
