"I wanted to create a delicate blance between realism and design. I like to get a real feeling of drama into all my paintings-a sense of power and fullness. To create a successful image, you need everything to work; composition, content and color.

"Since I'm still defining my style, each image I paint is a new challenge. It's exciting to discover and explore something new. I start with a sketch and keep pushing it until it can't go any further. For instance, the horses - I kept working on them until I finally got something that looked powerful enough for me."


Cary Austin
Upon first glance at an Austin painting, you might wonder if you’re looking at a protégé of the American artists Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood. "Not so," says Austin who insists that the influence is not conscious on his part. Nevertheless, he is drawn to the same subjects of the simple symbols of American life and has developed his own distinctive artistic style. Obviously skilled beyond his years, Austin attended Utah State University, but left Columbus College of Art and Design after being instructed to change a painting by an illustration teacher. The work of art, without the change, went on to win an award at the Society of Illustrators’ Student Show and Austin went on to pursue a commercial art career. Starting with local companies and Utah organizations, his work soon came to the attention of national advertising agencies and book companies. Primary Press was so impressed with his ability that it gave him complete freedom in illustrating a book called The First Vision. Austin’s paintings for that work won a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators, which brought him to the attention of The Greenwich Workshop.
