Spring makes me want to paint

When everything starts to flower, even the “weeds”, I get the urge to paint. Every spring, I start taking pictures of flowering trees, plants, weeds. Anything and everything that looks interesting. Trees when they start growing their first leaves and filling in my favorite path, make me feel happy. The pictures don’t capture the light, the beauty, or the happiness that the moment gives me. I don’t care. I take those pictures and later when I feel sad or bored, I paint them. Are those paintings any good? Does it matter? I relive the moment of happiness, anytime I need it.
