Trial and Error by Coty Schwabe


The Story

As the name indicates, this piece was done impulsively. I painted the back a vibrant yellow so that it would set the stage for becoming a bold, attention grabbing piece. Once I had the base coat, I actually didn’t know what I wanted to do with it.

While I stood there thinking, I noticed another piece I had created recently called “The Waltz.” It’s a simple piece with only three colors, composed of erratic, Pollock-esque lines. I knew then that I wanted to make a similar piece.

So, with no structure in mind, and a few flicks of the wrist – stacking white and black – the piece was created, and I had to step back and put my brushes down before I added any more and ruined it.

About this Item

This is a one of a kind piece. Acrylic on Canvas. This is NOT a print or copy, it is unique. Signed and dated on the back by the artist. Covered in a high gloss finish. Sides are painted either a solid color that matches the piece, or continuing complimentary colors.


This item ships AS IS. I don’t attach wire so that you can hang any direction you want. All it requires is two small screws or nails to hang, and can be hung from the outer frame or the cross bar (I have found this to be the more study way to do it).

Want a Different Version?

Like the piece but want something a tad different? Maybe a slightly different color scheme or size? No worries! I’d love to work with you in creating a custom piece to fit your home, business, or lifestyle! The final price would depend on materials and size, but if you don’t like the final product – you don’t buy it! That easy.
