The wild painting (あらぶるめいが, araburumeiga?, wild masterpiece) is a painting that can be bought in New Leaf from Redd and can be collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer. It is based upon Fujin Raijin-zu, a painting by Tawaraya Sōtatsu. It was made in the seventeenth-century on some gold leaf paper with ink.
