Smt. Sushila Bodade's painting a thing of beauty is joy forever, this romantic attitude towards life goes to Sushila Bodade. In all her paintings the banks of Tapti and Purna (the mountain rivers near lchchapur) create a reminiscent impression. The creation is highly imaginative which gives the viewer an exposure to nature's huge and unbounded scope. There is a melody of waterfall on rocks. A visual which takes us to these banks. We really flow with rises watching one to other painting.

Sushila never tires of painting this landscape, as she wants to perpetuate until she exhausts its limits. She delights in giving shape to the smallest stone and the rivulet that trickles off rocky formation. The figures that appear are females working around. She strongly emphasizes the protest that it is always ladies working hard. Shoulder to shoulder with men, and are still deprived of their rights. By moving round the series by her we find that she has a selective palette.

Her paintings move us when we flow with them as to how difficult life it would be for the people living there. The barrenness captures our mind. The dull impressions are specific notes in all her paintings. She has worked with oil on paper in contrast to her husband who uses oil on canvas. Sushila in her paintings mainly uses two color schemes, one leaning more to warm colors and the other maintaining a cold color approach. Her compositional and color strength is eye catching. Her paintings are down to earth, smelling of soil she once walked over in childhood.
