Though he is known more for his plein-air paintings of Island landscapes, Allen Whiting is a farmer who lives off the land, as his family has for twelve generations. Nowhere does he seem more at peace than when he is outside, farming or painting. His creative expressions of the beauty that surrounds him instruct, and reflect a deep sense of stewardship. His wife Lynne, children, and friends complete this homage to an undersung Island character. Discussion to follow with film subject Allen Whiting and directors Barbarella and David Fokos.
