  George Bodine paints landscapes, cityscapes, and people.
Recently, he has been travelling extensively in Europe, and
his paintings reflect his unique vision here and abroad.
He paints almost exclusively in oils, many of which are
from small, niche manufacturers.
George often hand stretches Belgian linen sized with rabbit
skin glue and primed with white lead, techniques dating from
the 16th. century. Recently he is painting on sun bleached
Belgian linen, again primed with white lead, but glued to either
sealed Birch board, or archival quality Artist's board.
He had never had an art lesson, and his distinct vision,
coupled with careful, proven techniques ensure that his work
will be permanent and able to be handed down within families
or collections
over centuries.

George Bodine's goal is to produce work that will transcend time.
His subject matter, and especially style or "voice" in painting,
is unique. His varied subjects keep him from being labeled as
coming from one type or genre of painting. Consequently, his
work is owned by diverse collectors varying from a U.S. Senator,
a contemporary Art Museum, and a U.S. Embassy, in addition
to hundreds of collectors in the U.S. and Europe. He will often
work on a series of paintings, only to stop suddenly, sometimes
to never return to the subject again.
Although George has been reclusive by nature in associating
with living artists and organizations, recently he did approach
and was immediately accepted into the Oil Painters of America.
Additionally, he has held 10 consecutive one man shows, almost
all of which have sold out.
