Daily Log Entry - September 16, 2004

The photograph on the left was taken approximately three weeks ago, before the process of inpainting the losses began.

On the right, the photo illustrates the careful and exacting inpainting executed by David Marquis. With his inpainting, confined to the areas of loss alone, the sheep can once again be visually read.
