Ron Pieniak 1969

It seems that I've always been an artist. I began drawing at an early age and was painting by the time I was twelve. My parents impressed with my abilities allowed me use a room in the basement of our home as an art studio. The photo presented above is me in that studio. Being a child in the late 1960's I was influenced by not only by the moderns like Picasso and Klee, but also the abstract expressionist and pop art as well.
