This 87-Year-Old Grandma’s Microsoft Paint Skills And Drawings Will Make Your Jaw Drop

Most grandmothers spend their days knitting.

Or fattening you up, or something homely and typical. There’s just too much different from our grandparents’ generation and our own, so it’s understandable that they feel alienated. Well, most of them, anyway. Because this grandma certainly didn’t get the memo. At 87-years old, she spends her days on the computer creating works of art. Allow me to introduce Concha Garcia Zaera.

Her hobby is using MS Paint to create artworks that would make anyone jealous. Hell, we all played around with them at some point in our lives, but this grandma outshines us all.

“My husband fell ill and I had to take care of him, so I couldn’t go out very often,” She told El Mundo “I began painting little things: first, a house, the next day I’d add a mountain… Step by step, I was adding details, and in the end, the result was a very pretty thing.”

“I have no imagination at all, so I get inspiration from the postcards that my husband used to send me or drawings that I find and like. I do not understand very well why my drawings draw so much attention, I think they are very simple things.”

To Vanguardiashe explained that each piece can take her up to two weeks to make. At first, she kept it personal, but when one of her granddaughters suggested she create an instagram about it, she soared in popularity. She has over 123,000 followers right now.
