As I started drawing plants in full scale, I made more and more sketches of the weeds that were around me. The weeds in this painting are those that I saw at the side of Edo River and also around my house. In those days I used to submit 4 to 5 paintings to the Spring Inten Exhibition; however based on the rules, only one painting per an artist was allowed to be selected. This painting was not selected.
