An Orange 'play it again' -- Carpe Diem

Orange Cézanne
Wonderful find
Flowers, roof, heart, in orange
Paul Cézanne in Albi
Original painting in
Henri Lautrec's Museum

[Mrs. Jim and I] found this original in the Lautrec Museum in Albi, France. It is by Paul Cézanne (1839 to 1906) and yes, he was pretty quirky, both artists were. (Cézanne Wikipedia link)

In just a lot of his pictures you can see Mont Sainte-Victoire as in this one. It is a mountain in Provence, France. Cézanne can see the whole view of the mountain from his house near Aix-en-Provence. He drew a series of oil paintings about or using his favorite mountain of his.

We were requested to find a haiku written about "orange" from the past posts.  I wasn't writing many haiku back then, certainly none emphasizing "orange".  But I did have this wonderful picture with Orange find from a travel post back in 2009 (link).

Other Orange pictures in posts:  Cable Car and Lady Bug.
