87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

- Page 1

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off.

Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  

The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the computer if we were allowed to.

Even though our parents would kick us outside all the time, we all got pretty good at using Paint. But honestly, after seeing what Concha Garcia Zaera can do, I no longer feel like my simple designs can even qualify as a picture.

Zaera is 87 years old, and she lives in Spain. She took classes in oil painting, but the strong scent of the products deterred her from ever bringing her hobby home.

Years later, her kids gave her a computer and she discovered Microsoft Paint, and she realized she could make beautiful images without any scent or product at all, all she needed was a mouse.

The pictures she can create are actually beyond impressive. Personally, when I have used Paint, any lines I draw are wiggly, weird, and not what I intended. Somehow this woman who claims she has "no imagination" is creating these gorgeous masterpieces.

Not only is she making beautiful art, but she's gained a huge following online...

'The Oregon Trail' Is Back And More Portable Than Ever, And We Can't Wait To Die Of Dysentery

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of

There's Going To Be A 'Ghostbusters' Version Of Pokemon Go And We Know Who We're Gonna Call

Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn't going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did? We weren't about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff. Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and
