"Quissett Harbor Picnic"
Oil on Canvas
32x40 $12,500


Classic wooden yachts bunk side by side with newer vessels of equal beauty. But the real jewels in the crown of this local treasure are the perfectly balanced Herreshoffs anchored there. Quissett Harbor is one of my favorite places to go in the early morning while both locals and visitors alike are still tucked in their beds. The harbor water at this time of day is like glass with just a faint indication of the tides that roam in and out. The absolute peace of this setting is a creative balm that I regularly use to start my day on just the right note.

It is a sure sign of summer when you stroll through Heritage Gardens and find these beautiful aquatic flowers in bloom.

"Woodneck Beach Wonderland"
40x40 Oil on Linen
$11,595


Wood Neck Beach, in the Sippewisset area, is a sandy bay-side beach backed by grass-covered dunes and thousands of Rosa Rugosa. At high tide the beach is very narrow, but sandbars and shallow tidal pools make this a lovely safe place for children when the tide is out. Woodneck Beach in West Falmouth on beautiful Cape Cod is a sight to behold. June brings an abundance of fragrant blossoms of beach roses (rosa rugosa) and welcomes back locals and visitors to this peaceful little beach . There is a marsh behind the beach where you will see many of the local birds. I was inspired to paint this wonderful view by the wind blowing off of Buzzards Bay, throwing a blanket of scent of our beloved beach roses.

"Quissett Harbor Landing"
Oil on Canvas
30x30 $10,200


Quissett Harbor is one of my favorite places to go in the early morning while most locals and visitors are still tucked in their beds. Early in the morning you'll find a robust crew of sailors getting their gear ready for a day of sailing and hanging out on the dock at Quissett Harbor Landing. If you want to know where the fish are biting, who has just purchased a new sailboat, and the tiniest bits of local gossip, I highly recommend that you arrive at the landing around 6 AM. Bring coffee and doughnuts and a great sense of humor as you'll need them when you're chatting with the local Cape Codders that you will find there.

"Best Friends"
Oil on Belgium Linen
30x36 $14,500


As much as I love the ocean, sailing, and the northeast coast, I'm also drawn to figurative painting, more precisely dance. The two young dancers that you see in this painting are best friends and have been dancing together since they were toddlers. They are both working hard towards a career with national ballet companies in the future. The inspiration and idea for the composition of this painting was apparent while I was visiting this particular ballet company and saw these two young dancers, one with her hand on the other's shoulder and quietly talking together.

"Provincetown Day Trip"
Oil on Belgium Linen

There is nothing more fun when you visit Cape Cod than a day trip to Provincetown. The village is known for its diverse population and beautiful views. Bring your bicycle and take a ride on the bike path through the dunes; it's a delightful way to spend an afternoon. Five-star restaurants and unique shops abound. In the late 19th century Portuguese fishermen started to settle in the village along with a sizable community of artists who still live and paint there. I know that you will enjoy the many art galleries that feature all genres of art.

"Vineyard Haven Harbor"
Martha's Vineyard
Oil on Canvas
30x30 $10,200


On a warm day this summer, I received a call early in the morning from my dear friend Alan. Alan and I frequently take boat rides out into Nantucket Sound, traveling to the islands and visiting harbors and other areas that you can only reach by sailing or motoring out to them. The inspiration for this painting came from the peaceful scene of two classic sailboats anchored side-by-side awaiting their masters to take the helm and once again sail the waves of Nantucket Sound.

Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez plays host to some of the most beautiful yachts from both the era of elegance and the modern-day. First run twenty-six years ago as La Nioulargue, Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez gathers together modern sailboats alongside traditional yachts during the first week of October. Racers and sailing enthusiasts come from all over Europe to do battle in the bay of Saint Tropez. Tuiga, a well known classic yacht, began her long life in 1909 when she slipped into the cold Scottish waters at the boatbuilder William Fife’s yard. She had been commissioned by the Duc de Medinacelli, a close friend of the King of Spain, Alphonse XIII. William Fife designed Tuiga as a twin to the Fife-built Hispania so that the two 15-meter JI vessels were equally matched for racing purposes.

"Race Day"
Oil on Canvas
14x30 $10,900


MAKE YOUR BATHROOM UNIQUE!

Back in the 60's, classic yachts in English Harbor had begun chartering, and the captains and crews challenged each other to a race down to Guadeloupe at the end of the charter season. From this informal race, Antigua Sailing Week was formed in 1967 and in those days all of the yachts were classic. However, over the next 24 years, the classic yachts were slowly outnumbered by the faster, sleeker modern racing yachts. A small number of classics still racing in 1987 found themselves grouped with cruising Class 3 which was less than ideal for these hard-to-maneuver full-keeled vessels. And so it came about that captains Uli Pruesse and Kenny Coombs hosted a meeting with other classic skippers onboard the magnificent schooner Aschanti of Saba and, several rums later, the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta was born.

A little past the turn on Surf Drive, on the left-hand side and right in front of the bike path, there is a pond. At different times of the year it is teaming with flocks of birds.

"Marion to Bermuda"
Oil on Belgium Linen
32x40 $12,500


The Marion-Bermuda Race was founded by two remarkable men; William David (”Dave“) Kingery and Geoffrey Richard (”Dickie“) Bird. The first Marion-Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race in 1977 was a great success. There were 104 yachts at the starting line attesting to the need for an event comprised of offshore vessels manned by cruising crews. The going was slow in light southwesterly winds and most of the expectant officials at the finish line thought CHEE CHEE would cross first. But her position was not accurate and Herb Marcus’s SILKIE took line honors, first on corrected time and first short-handed. marionbermuda.com

The Connecticut ballet was kind enough to allow me access to their dancers during practice and rehearsals. These are incredibly talented young men and women who adore dancing and everything about it. They are committed to the beauty, discomfort, and everything else that goes along with being a professional ballet dancer. They work incredibly hard to perfect their craft and many of these dancers have gone on to dance with famous international ballets. Their love of dance and insistence on perfection was the inspiration for this painting.

"Hermanas de Pollera"
28x40 Oil on Linen
$14,500


Pollera is the traditional costume and folk dance of Panama. The Pollera is worn by women during festivals and the yearly competition at the Teatro National in Panama City. I lived in Panama for a number of years. While I was there the focus of my paintings became centered on the national traditional Panamanian dance called Pollera. I was commissioned by the Panama Canal Authority to create 15 paintings of their national dance form for their corporate offices in Panama City. It took me over 2 1/2 years to complete these paintings as they are highly detailed, and every aspect needs to be exact as there is a specific meaning to every detail of Pollera costuming. The headpiece decorations include tortoiseshell combs known as Peinetas, and seed pearl with 18-carat gold hair decorations which are called Tembleque’s. There are 18 solid gold chains with each carrying a specific medallion around the dancer’s neck. I spent another year traveling to jewelers who only create this traditional jewelry. Another number of months was spent with women in the village of Ocú located on the Azuero Peninsula, very close to my home when I lived in Panama. For generations, the village women have created the most exquisite embroidery in the country.

About The Artist


Always surrounded by the sea, with a family heritage of sailing, writing, acting and painting, the O'Malley-Keyes clan of eight children were expected to choose a creative endeavor. Their father, Nial O'Malley-Keyes, was a published author and world traveler. A man who brought a feeling of zest for life to an art form, he demanded that each one of his eight children choose their creative expression. It could be acting, writing, painting, sculpting, weaving, or whatever creative endeavor that interested them; Ms. O'Malley-Keyes embraced painting. Starting in the late '60s, the artist lived in Provincetown during the summer. She spent winters in New York City, studying at the Art Students League. During her time in Provincetown, she studied with Henry Hensche, honing her skills and studying color theory. Although Ms. O'Malley Keyes is known for her highly detailed oil paintings, it is her understanding of color theory that she credits to her study with Henry Hensche. She opened her first art gallery in Provincetown in 1970 at the age of 22. The artist states that she owes the success that she has had in her artistic career to her studies with noted masters here in the United States, Europe and Shanghai. Julia has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and Central America seeking out painting masters to study with and expand her knowledge of fine art. She travels yearly to study with noted Marine and Figurative painters to further hone her skills and to find continued inspiration in painting the historic yachts, local vistas, commissioned portraits and paintings that are at the center of her artistic career. "My choice of painting in the genre of contemporary realism, using an old master's technique of transparent layers of color, reflects my desire to simplify what an individual is looking at and through my work, feel that they are in the moment and a part of the painting." It is color, her intense emotional connection to the sea and her fascination with elegant sailing yachts coupled with her deep desire to "know" the people behind her highly detailed portraits that inspire her. "I want the viewer to feel the rush of water, the smell of salt air, and the joy of being on the ocean. I have chosen to paint these magnificent sailing yachts as a historical record. Versatility and vitality encapsulate the spectrum of her subjects from elegant classic yachts to charming coastal vistas, harbors, family portraits, the beauty of Cape Cod and international destinations. As you look at Julia's paintings, the viewer can immediately see her dedication to detail, masterful use of color and composition to create a unique work of art.
