Art by Salazar is a site dedicated to showing the artwork of an acclaimed Florida artist. While her pieces can be found nationwide and internationally, the artwork can now be seen on this website.
Barbara has recently designed a new flag for her Seminole Lake Country Club Estates (SLCC) community. It is today's (June 29, 2011) front page feature of the Seminole Beacon.
Barbara's own descripton and full pictures of the flag are below; please see the following link for the Seminole Beacon's full front page article. Enjoy!
Seminole Lake Country Club Estates (SLCC) just south of Park Boulevard has a new neighborhood flag waving to greet all who pass the Augusta Boulevard and Burning Tree Drive entrances on Park Street.
The SLCC Homeowners Association commissioned a local artist to design a flag that would symbolize the character and charm of the neighborhood. The flag was created by artist Barbara Salazar of ArtbySalazar.com, who is a proud resident of this special community.
SLCC is a little peninsula within the peninsula of Pinellas County within the peninsula of the state of Florida. The community's history is best described in the neighborhood’s website, seminolelakehoa.com. The Seminole Indian flag was an inspiration for the artist to honor the heritage of the land. Researching flag designs, studying the history of the neighborhood, and interviewing neighbors were paramount for the design. Featured on the flag is the log cabin from the original settler, which is still located on the golf course. The flag also highlights other unique qualities about the neighborhood, including the waterways, sun, vegetation, boating, and, of course, the homes. Notably, the pair of bald eagles that have nested and soared in the skies there for over two decades are now forever on this flag as well.
For all who venture to this special community of green landscapes and blue waters, this flag will proudly wave to welcome you.
