I've got three of my truck paintings on display at Raven Gallery in Jersey City for the rest of June and July, 2017. Opening is June 17 from 5-9PM. Raven Gallery & Boutique 304 Newark Ave. Jersey City, NJ
This yellow cement truck is my latest watercolor painting in my Trucks series. I'll be hanging it along with other new paintings at The Dopeness in Jersey City later this week.
I'm currently exhibiting my watercolor paintings of trucks at Two Boots in Jersey City. They'll be up until the beginning of February and I'll be hanging out there with my kids on Monday, January 20th from 12-2pm. I'll have coloring activities for the kids so drop by, grab a slice and check out my paintings. Two Boots, 133 Newark Ave, Jersey City, NJ Artist Statement: Jay Boucher is surrounded by trucks. Trailers, dump trucks, delivery vans, garbage trucks; day and night they rumble and rattle past his ground floor studio. Seeing life and personality in these utilitarian machines, Jay decided to render them in the fluid medium of watercolor.
The Keats Foundation recently launched a game I worked on, "Crazy Hats". It's a dress-up toy where you chose a character from one of Ezra Jack Keats books, add a hat, then decorate it with items selected from his books. It's inspired by his gorgeous children's book "Jennie's Hat", the story of a girl whose Sunday hat is decorated with flowers and lace by helpful birds. Decorate your own hat now!
I've redesigned my portfolio site and posted new work, including my Trucks series of watercolor paintings and a few of the games I've created for the Keats Foundation. The new format of my site includes bigger images and less text and I look forward to posting new work as I create it. Check it out now!
The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation just launched the new Mancala game I designed. It's a simple, leisurely paced counting game with elements loosely based on the Keats book "Dreams". I had fun creating little bottle caps and bolts for the pieces and, after playing the game over and over again, have learned Mancala strategy. Play it now!
I recently created an interactive dot to dot game for the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation. It's based on the book "Kitten for a Day" and there are 9 different connect the dots puzzles. A hidden drawing is revealed step by step and the player is rewarded with a short animation upon completion of each puzzle. This engaging game is perfect for learning numbers, counting and task completion. Play "Kitten for a Day" Dot to Dot now. See all the games I've created for Ezra Jack Keats.
