"Pride of Quissett Yacht Club"
Oil on Linen
30x32 $9,200


Long before the yacht club was founded in 1912, fishing and pleasure boats used the quiet shores and deep protected waters of Quissett Harbor located just north of Woods Hole on Buzzards Bay. Herreshoff 12½s have been racing in Quissett Harbor continuously since the boat was designed and built in 1914-15 by Nathanael Herreshoff. These classic wooden boats are now combined with their newer replica, the fiberglass Doughdish, into the H Class. With wooden spars and colorful spinnakers, the large fleets racing three or four days a week during the summer are a beautiful sight. The larger 28 foot Herreshoff S boat, originally raced in Quissett waters from 1928 to the 1940s, has been reintroduced and a small fleet can be seen racing on Saturdays. The Club is committed to its family-centered tradition, blending a friendly social environment with a variety of racing and teaching programs and social events in which member families participate with pride and enthusiasm.

"Woodneck Beach Wonderland"
40x40 Oil on Linen
$14,595


Woodneck 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.

"Wardrobe Teatro La Fenice"
23K Gold Museum Quality Frame
40x50 Oil on Belgian Linen
$38,500


Teatro La Fenice is an opera house in Venice, Italy. It is one of "the most famous and renowned landmarks in the history of Italian theatre" and in the history of opera as a whole. Especially in the 19th century, La Fenice became the site of many famous operatic premieres at which the works of several of the four major bel canto era composers – Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi – were performed.
Its name reflects its role in permitting an opera company to "rise from the ashes" despite losing the use of three theatres to fire, the first in 1774 after the city's leading house was destroyed and rebuilt but not opened until 1792; the second fire came in 1836, but rebuilding was completed within a year. However, the third fire was the result of arson. It destroyed the house in 1996 leaving only the exterior walls, but it was rebuilt and re-opened in November 2004.
It is extremely rare that one is able to gain entry to the wardrobe rooms of any opera company but in particular. Teatro La Fenice and the opera companies who perform there guard its wardrobe closely as a way to maintain a bit of surprise for the attending audiences. My good luck of access came from a dear friend of mine who is an enormous opera fan and a notable individual as he is the son of Otto Preminger and Gypsy Rose Lee. Otto and I became very close in the late 1960s while I was living in New York City and introduced me to his son Eric who has been a dear friend of mine ever since.

"Vineyard Haven Harbor"
Martha's Vineyard
Oil on Canvas
30x30 $10,995


On a warm day last 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 sailboat 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 Captains to take the helm and once again sail the waves of Nantucket Sound.

"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

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 some of the world’s most magnificent sailing yachts, as a type of 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.
