Paul wanted to create a large painting where the viewer would be physically engaged. This entailed challenging Dulcinea to make a painting taller and wider than she was originally created for and even wider than what he could paint in fourths. So, he needed to create rollers at the top and bottom to increase the range of heights Dulcinea could accommodate. To work the side-to-side, or width, issue, Paul rotated the painting 90 degrees so the width of the paining became the top to bottom and he could use the rollers again. Thus, Paul expanded the canvas and gave Dulcinea much more room to work with.
This painting was painted in sixths with time in between each section for the paint to dry. The first time Paul rolled out the painting on the floor was the first time he saw the entire paining together as one piece.
The brushstrokes are the heart and soul of this painting, and the objective was to use the great expanse of space to entertain the eye with movement, color and energy.
