Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Trudy Benson.

Referring to a painting in the studio, Benson comments that there were "several points when I just kind of wanted to throw in the towel... rather than... scrape anything off I started doing these scribble lines either in spray paint or paint squeezed out of the tubes... I want the history of the painting to be there and I try not to think about things being mistakes in the painting... they're part of the painting."
