Landscape Artist Hits the Road Daily

Listen to this story
Over the last three decades, Washington county artist Harry Orlyk has spent countless hours outdoors capturing the beauty of neighboring silos, farmhouses, fields and livestock. He lives in Salem, New York, near the Vermont border, and works out of the back of his van. Orlyk is adamant about creating a daily image. No matter what the season, no matter what the weather, he paints every day, sitting inside his truck, with the steering wheel as an easel. He says he doesn't go far because the landscape is always changing, and not always for the better. Lu Olkowski caught up with Harry Orlyk to learn what inspires his artwork.
