    91-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint In A Way That Would Probably Surprise Even Its Developers

    It is never too late to start learning a new skill or searching for a brand new hobby. Learning really doesn’t just stop and end immediately after high school or university, and 91-year-old Spanish grandmother Concha García Zaera is living proof of this.

    The incredibly talented artist from Valencia has been wowing the internet with her incredibly detailed works of art, all done exclusively on Microsoft Paint. Now we’ve all spent quite a lot of time in the program as kids (and, let’s be honest, as adults), but very few of us have approached this level of mastery.

    Artist Concha is very humble. In her Instagram bio, she presents herself in a very simple and wholesome way. “I am a 90-year-old lady. I like to paint with the Paint program. And above all to be with my family and with my friends,” she writes. However, her 91st birthday was on June 12 (she was born in 1930), so we assume she simply didn’t have the time to update her bio.

    Currently, the Spanish grandmother has a whopping 301k followers on Instagram and her circle of fans keeps growing. Back in 2018, when Bored Panda first wrote an article about Concha’s Paint artwork, she had 108k followers. This just goes to show that she creates art that’s the perfect mix of quality and popular appeal.

    But above all, Concha’s skills prove to us that we really can do anything and at any age, given that we put in enough time and dedication. Persistence and focus are key here.

    One of Concha’s granddaughters convinced her to create an account on Instagram in 2017 and that step has ensured that people have been able to enjoy her colorful and detailed Paint drawings ever since.

    The grandmother’s journey into the world of Paint began more than a decade earlier after her husband fell ill and later sadly passed away. Her family gave her an old computer and she started spending time on the Paint program to keep herself busy.

    “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,” Concha told Vanguardia. It takes her roughly two weeks to finish a single work of art. Something else that inspires her is her beautiful hometown of Valencia. You can really see her love for the city in the care she puts into each and every Paint brushstroke.

    Concha remains very humble about her skills and believes that her drawings are “simple things” and she can’t fathom why they get so much attention.
