Three or More Thursday

Three_Or_More_Logo Tam at The Gypsy’s Corner is the hostess for “Three or More Thursday” and I’m joining in for the first time this week. (clicking on the logo on the right will take you to her site)

This week I am going to share the artwork of a local artist, Joy Hulgan. I had the opportunity to get to know one of her sisters when our sons played soccer together over fifteen years ago. All the sketches we purchased were of places that were sentimental to us.

Georgia Institute of Technology, where I went to school and where my son now attends:

Ga Tech

Lanier School for Boys, where my husband when to elementary school:


First Baptist Church, where my in-laws and my husband and I were married:

First Baptist Church

The Pig, a local barbecue restaurant (yum):

The Pig

and the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters Golf Tournament:


From a bio I found online:

“Joy Hulgan comes from a family of artists, including her mother and two sisters. As a group, the sisters have enjoyed over twenty years in the fine art business, reproducing Joy's art and the art of their mother, Mary Hulgan. Joy began drawing architectural sites and landscapes in 1978 and has published numerous reproductions of her work. She also works in oils, painting landscapes and portraits. In her spare time, she teaches art to seniors and finds that a particularly joyful experience.”

Thanks for visiting my blog. Visit Tam at The Gypsy’s Corner. for more Three or More Thursday participants.

  26. Hi Susan, I stopped by to tell you I've run into the problem of only being able to follow a certain number of blogs...apparently I've hit my limit. :-(
    But I had to tell you, I grew up on Macon, went to First Baptist from the time I was 8 and my husband went there his whole life. We met there and that's the church we were married in, as well as both his sisters. It's also the church I was baptised in. I went to Miller in 8th grade but we moved so I had to finish out high school at McEvoy. I went to college at Mercer...small world, isn't it? :-)


Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment! I enjoy reading all your thoughts and will try to answer any questions you might have for me. Have a wonderful day....hope to "see"you again soon!
