Concha García Zaera is 87 years old, and she discovered her newfound hobby when her children got her a computer. “My husband fell ill and I had to take care of him, so I couldn’t go out very often,” Concha explained to 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.”

The artist started out by posting the pictures on Facebook, but she has found over 100,000 followers on Instagram. “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,” she said to Vanguard. “I do not understand very well why my drawings draw so much attention, I think they are very simple things.”

Concha may not understand the hype behind her images, but they are pretty amazing. Behold her Microsoft masterpieces.

This little scene looks so peaceful.
