Due to his enormous energy and passion for his art, Bodner finds time to paint early in the morning, and late in the evening and on weekends. He describes his work as strong and colorful with an expressionistic style. "The power of juxtaposing or placing one color on top of another to create an image is what drives my paintings," he says. Primarily Bodner considers himself a colorist and is constantly looking for the interplay of colors on his canvases. He says he has been inspired by works of Cezzanne, Van Gogh and Philip Johnson, architect.

Neiman Marcus of Atlanta sponsored a solo show for the artist in February of 2002. He was the featured artist for the Northside Hospital's Foundation Ball in 2000 and the subject of a one-man show at the Global Arts Gallery, Atlanta in 1998.
