Apparently, Concha Garcia Zaera has been an artist all her life.  She used to create oil paintings, but after being bought a computer, she hung up her paint brushes and started using Microsoft Paint.

“My husband fell ill and I had to take care of him, so I couldn’t go out very often,” Zaera said. “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.”

It takes her around two weeks to complete each picture, and most of her inspiration comes from the postcards her husband used to send her.  "I do not understand very well why my drawings draw so much attention, I think they are very simple things."
