Park City • It was in broad daylight on Saturday when Deborah Uhl stepped toward the Banksy angel image on the Cunningham Building garage just off Main Street gripping a can of white spray paint.

A touch of here, another touch there. It took only a few seconds or so each time she carefully added a bit of the white paint to the piece depicting a kneeling angel boy.

Uhl, a painting conservator from Telluride, Colo., was summoned to Park City in January by the owner of the Cunningham building to attempt to save the Banksy after the New Year’s vandalism. Uhl in January removed approximately half of the vandal’s graffiti and returned to Park City last Wednesday to take off most of the rest and then restore the original Banksy image.
