When you say you cannot draw or paint them, I assume you mean 'accurately'? 

If that's the case, then you don't have a problem. My teacher always tells me "If I wanted you to copy exactly how it looks like, then I would just get you to photocopy it"

What she means, is that you need to be working with your strengths, is it use of colour? continuous line drawings? expressionism? 

If you don't feel comfortable drawing or painting, don't let that stop you from doing a certain theme, like landscapes.

I advise you to look up some expressionist or abstaract artists and get inspired by the great minds of painters like Ute Laum, Nancy Eckels, or the obvious Van Gogh!
