In the film, Murray talks about her working process: "What I'm looking for," she notes, "is resolution. I have it one day and I don't have it the next day. But that's what's so great about being an artist - that you can get that kind of satisfaction. What's been so hard about these paintings is that I don't know how I'm going to get them resolved… Usually what happens is when I start to really hate it, it starts to go someplace. It’s almost as though you have to get down into that place where you absolutely hate it and want to rip it off the wall, rip it to pieces, and throw it out, to start getting into it."
