Sidonie Caron

Sidonie Caron loves to experiment and play with painting. Her works use bright colors, varied texture and gestural brushstrokes to convey the spirit of the outdoors. She currently lives in Oregon. Fun fact: she finds inspiration in everything from her surroundings to a marble bathroom floor.

Ms. Caron, I am interested in the Tilikum Crossing painting, currently on loan with Portland Art Museum. Can you email me to discuss? Thank you so much.

Dear Sidonie, “Rock Formations” arrived yesterday and is even more spectacular than when I saw it online. The texture and light in it change with the time of day, so I will never see the same painting. But most of all I am inexplicably moved by it, more than by any other painting I looked at both online and in galleries. Thank you so much for your vision and skill in creating this work. I am grateful and honored to own it. Trisha Clifford

Dear R.Brant, I was not planning to make a giclee print of "The Lewis & Clark Trail" 20.5 x 0.5" But if you are interested, please let me know. Happy Holidays, Sidonie.

Ms. Caron, what is the name of the piece at Meriwether's? I know it's not a print now, but I want to find a print when one is made eventually -- I hope. Thank you so much.

Sidonie Caron 12/11/2012 | 4:36 PM

Spent last Saturday Dec. 8th as part of a group of artists making monoprints for a fundraiser for PICA (Portland Institute for Contemporary Art). It was a lot of fun although, I have not done printmaking since my art school days in London, and that was more years ago than I care to remember.

Sidonie Caron 12/11/2012 | 4:27 PM

Thank you for the kind words about my painting at Meriwethers, I do like that piece myself. I do not normally make prints of my work, although I have a couple of giclees available, one called "A City of Bridges" and the other "Hawthorne Bridge" which original was used as the cover of the 2010 calendar celebrating the bicentennial of that bridge.

Sidonie Caron 12/11/2012 | 4:18 PM

Thank you for the compliment. So sorry about my delayed reply to you, I've been swamped lately as I am in several shows concurrently. I do believe there are prints of my work in Canada, it may take a little research on your part to find the print companies dealing with them.

R Brant 12/11/2012 | 3:05 PM

I was just at Meriwether's last week and fell in love with the colors and hidden figures in the landscape you did for them. Is it possible to get a print of this piece? In my brief time there that afternoon, it defined the palette for my new home!

B Hull 10/23/2012 | 12:46 PM

Lovely work. Want to know about your work and where it is available in Canada.

Sidonie Caron 8/21/2012 | 1:56 PM

Just spent a day outside the Portland Art Museum participating in a Plein Air painting session which was fun because the heatwave we've experienced here abated just in time. As I used to say in my earlier years painting the old houses in Portland only "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid day sun....." The next show that I will be part of is a juried exhibit entitled Industry & Art: Celebrating the Worker , which will take place 9/19/12 at Vigor Industries on Swan Island, this is a ship, barge and rail car building enterprise.

Sidonie Caron 8/21/2012 | 1:40 PM

Thank you so much for your kind comments they are much appreciated. Cordially, Sidonie.

I love the way you blend bright and beautiful colors, and the way these paintings evoke emotion in me and joy. I also love the bridges and the detail that it takes to make them jump off the canvas as they do is just extraordinary. Your gift is extraordinary.

Sidonie Caron 6/28/2012 | 3:59 PM

I have had quite a few paintings acquired by public collections in Portland OR in the last few months, mostly hospitals. I will also be included in a competitive show entitled "Industry & Art" scheduled for Nov 2012 in Portland. If you watch the TV show "Grimm" you might catch sight of one of my vertical Asian paintings called "Three Mountains & A Cat"

Sidonie Caron 1/24/2012 | 12:34 PM

January, 2012, has begun well with 4 paintings acquired by public collections in Portland, OR and 1 painting to a private collector in the UK. Happy New Year to all and I hope all artists will benefit from an uptick in the economy.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This is an abstracted landscape painted primarily with a palette knife. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
