From New York to Paris
Just months later, Linda’s Footsteps #12 was published in the July/August 2015 issue after winning the Pastel category of the magazines All Media Contest
Lindas work was once again showcased in the French publication Pratique des Arts, this time in a Winter 2015 issue that examined the artistry of snowy landscapes.
Linda and her work were featured in article entitled Excite with White which explores color in paintings with white subjects, in the February 2014 issue of Pastel Journal.
As part of Linda’s inspiring placement in such a selective and competitive competition (in the top 8 award-winners), her piece Footsteps #1 was published in the hardcover book that celebrates the award-winners and top 50 finalists in the International Art Search 2011 Paintings Drawings International Exhibit.
Linda has been honored once again; she has been included in the Marquis WhosWho in American Art, a publication that contains the biographies of noteworthy artists, featuring commissions and exhibitions, museums holding their work, awards, books and articles by and about them, the media in which they work, along with personal and professional histories.
It isn’t a surprise that Linda Gross Browns works have started capturing the attention of Latin American and European collectors. Linda’s participation was requested in a French art magazine, Pratique des Arts. She and her two award-winning pieces Footsteps #1 and Treehaven #1 were featured in the June 2010 issue of the magazine a special issue illuminating the pastel artists of the world. Pratique des Arts has been described as roughly speaking, the equivalent of The Artist Magazine [in Europe] by Laurent Benoist, a journalist for the magazine.
Love at first touch is how Brown describes her initial experience with the medium. I could paint with my fingers and not just a brush, she explains. It really made me a part of the work, which was so freeing, so intriguing. The ability to paint with my fingers makes this medium a pleasurable and personal experience.

American Artist Magazine writer, James A. Metcalfe, had the same questions about Linda’s masterful process and finished work that her devoted followers do. In his article, he delights us with answers. A perfect mixture of James well-put questions and Linda’s colorful and descriptive answers gives us a finished article that is not only extremely fascinating but downright inspiring.
In April, Linda’s Footsteps #3 was included in the Pastel 100 Competition – a yearly competition sponsored by the Pastel Journal magazine. Her work was awarded not only with an award of Honorable Mention, but was published in the April 2010 issue of the magazine.
Linda was very honored when her painting A Cold Walk was not only accepted into a prestigious printed collection of worldwide artists (BEST OF WORLDWIDE ARTISTS working in Charcoal, Pastel Pencil, Vol. 1), but was chosen to be printed on the back cover. A Cold Walk is consistently awarded and recognized.
