Clearwater, Florida -- A huge mural of 'Winter' the tailless dolphin now welcomes visitors to Clearwater Beach.
The 18' by 45' mural is on the east side of the Pier House 60 hotel just south of the roundabout, facing the beach marina and the Memorial Causeway.
It was commissioned by the hotel developer and created by artist John Schunck. It shows 'Winter' using her prosthetic tail to leap from the water.
A second artwork is also planned for the hotel, a rolling ball kinetic motion sculpture that will be installed in the hotel's lobby.
