Allen Whiting, who lives and works on the same generations-old family sheep farm where he grew up, has been painting landscapes for a long time. At age 64, it’s what he wants to keep doing: “Mostly I really want to do what I do, better. I’m starting to eliminate stuff from my life that’s unnecessary so that I can spend more time painting, with more focus. There’s no sense in changing horses at this point.”

That means he’ll keep painting on Martha’s Vineyard, his primary muse since he first picked up a paintbrush. His collectors, who pay upwards of $20,000 for his larger works (small paintings start in the $1,200 range), wouldn’t have it any other way.
