lithotine

arms draw out

in black, which soaks up light safely

and leaves bright contrast in limestone

washed away carborundum

resin dust could give you cancer. So could asphaltum.

but etched in stone is family.

My second lithograph, on heavy printing paper, crayon black with magnesium carbonate added.

Combining my scientific studies with my artwork is delightful. This says something to both disciplines, though the two rarely overlap.
