A stories about weather

My most favorite Japanese painting is the folding screen "Natsuakikusa figure screen" painted by Sakai Hoitsu. There are arrowroots and Japanese pampas grasses fluttering in the wind on the left wing, and summer grasses drooping in the rain and a small water flow over there on the right wing. Actually this was drawn behind Ogata Korin's "Wind God Thunder Graphic Screen" with his respect after about 100 years.
