Lifeguard Headquarters Sculpture

Laguna Beach: Lifeguard Headquarters SculptureTerrific art down at the Lifequard Headquarters. Only problem is me. I haven't paid much attention to the news and I have no idea how to describe this type of sculpture and I don't know the artists name.

Can anyone assist me with the info?

Update: Found an article in the OC Register detailing the sculpture and it's creator.

Here is a portion of the article:
Local artist Terry Thornsley, known for creating the oak tree bronze in front of the Montage Laguna Beach resort, won with his mural titled "Grace." The mural features a marine scene of undulating waves crafted from sheet bronze, copper and stainless steel. An old lifeguard dory can be seen paddling toward a struggling figure in the distance, Arts Commissioner Pat Kollenda pointed out.

    The $40k mural is from local artist Terry Thornsley, called "Grace".

    1. Sorry Steve I found the article before I opened your comment otherwise I would have credited you as the finder of the info.

    By-the-way, you can thank(literally) the Laguna Beach Arts Commision for 'not' approving the earlier two proposedsculptures.
