1. Concha’s artistic experience didn’t begin with the Microsoft program.
2. She used to take oil painting classes at a local senior care center, but stopped when her husband got sick.
3. “My husband fell ill and I had to take care of him, so I couldn’t go out very often,” she told El Mundo.
4. But Concha found the perfect outlet for her creativity when her children gave her a computer.
5. “I began painting little things: first, a house, the next day I’d add a mountain.”
6. “Step by step, I was adding details, and in the end, the result was a very pretty thing.”
7. Each piece takes at least two weeks to complete, as Concha uses a mouse to draw every detail.
8. Her inspiration? The scenes from postcards her husband sent her in the past.
9. Concha says she has no imagination and that her creations are just “simple things.” Her fans couldn’t disagree more!
10. With each new addition she uploads to her Instagram page, thousands marvel and ask themselves, “How does she do it?!”
11. It just goes to show that anything is possible when you’re fueled by passion.
12. “The bridge that crosses the Valencia river.”
13. Hillside poppies.
14. Crashing waves of blue and green.
15. And finally, a flower shop bursting with colorful blooms.
Incredible! Concha’s work is proof that an artist’s talent can shine through any medium.
