Brightening Up Boynton Beach



Judy Dempsey, an artist in Boynton Beach, sent in this snapshot of a recent mural she painted outside a local business.

“It's a family-owned pharmacy for 20 years, Medication Station on East Woolbright Road in Boynton,” she wrote. “I've been doing murals about 10 years. I never thought I could do this for a living. I worked in retail most of my life until a friend made me try this. I'm a single mom. Just put my daughter in college. I love what I do. I paint every subject but my passion is fish and I live in a great place for that."

The mural shows a classic Florida scene: mahi-mahi are balling up baitfish under a sargassum patch, and one of them, a bull, has just been duped by a sportfisher trolling nearby.

"That's the owner's favorite fish," said Dempsey. "He has a house in the Keys and wanted to have something of the Keys on the building. The funny thing is people think it is a bait and tackle shop now instead of a pharmacy! He actually just commissioned me to do a 5 foot by 4 foot replica of the mural on canvas for his Keys home."

Dempsey works in residential as well as commercial properties, painting stools, signs, canvas and of course murals.  To see more of her work, visit www.artexplosionofsouthflorida.com
