i began this painting this morning. as yet, it has no collaged paper. 

mount longhu (dragon tiger mountain) is where chinese landscape painter & daoist mystic fang congyi lived in the early 14th c. 

according to daoist geomantic thought, longmo, or dragon veins is a powerful life energy that pulsates through the mountain ranges and streams.
