Family Portrait 2042 by Mason44 Family Portrait 2042 by Mason44
'09 - Marker and colored pencil 9"x12"

What I'm afraid my future will look like. Me alone, no wife, no family. Just me, unloved and forgotten.

I'll be 60 in 2042

*Replacing my previous one that was poorly cropped.

I'm sorry you feel that way too. I'm sure you still have plenty of time though. Thank you for adding this to your collection. I really appreciate it. By the way, you have a great gallery. Keep up the good work.

No, you're definitely good. I don't think I could do digital art as well as you. In fact, I know I can't. Thank you for the watch by the way :)

Awwwwww :cuddle: I hope it doesn't come to that... (hugs older you) I'm sure you'll find something, you've got plenty of time...

Wow, well that's not so bad; I'll be 60 by 2048, but it's not getting me down... technically you're only 6 years older than me which is actually younger than I had thought ^^; (You've always acted like someone older...)

But yes; this is awesome, as much as it is thought provoking...

I hope so too. We'll see though. It's not the being 60 part that's getting me down. I just put that on there so people know that's the age I was going for. I'm curious as to how old you thought I was though. I'm glad you like it :)

Well, possibly not too much older... early 30s maybe... 32 to 33... possibly (you have an attitude of a more mature person.)

Well I'm glad, its just how your artist's comment read... ^^; sounded like you were a bit depressed...

and you're welcome :cuddle:

I guess that's not too bad. Maybe I have an older soul or something. It's scary that I'm actually going to be 30 in two years though. I feel like it was just a couple years ago that I was starting college.

Yeah the 60 doesn't bother me, it's the being alone at 60 that does lol

Possibly :D I can't blame you... I guess it's okay for me thinking "I'm only in my early teens." I've got another 8 years to go until I'm 30 (well, 7 and a few months)
And here's me, feeling like me starting college was ancient history (it feels so long ago...)

Well I hope you don't end up alone :nod: :hug: and I'm pretty sure a someone with character like yourself shouldn't...

I don't know. In some ways it feels like it was yesterday, in others it feels like it was ages ago. Some things come back so clearly but others feel like they were part of a dream or something you just made up and sometimes those things can overlap. I know there's one person in particular that has happened with. I kinda feel like I just made her up but some things are so clear and vivid. It's crazy how time and memories work. I think I'm just rambling at this point lol

I hope you're right though. Thanks.
