Only if the painter in question hates to paint or doesn't want to paint the picture. Otherwise, if a person loves to paint and wants to paint, and paints, it's very logical that they do so.
This simply means logic is in the details and needs to be looked for. Over generalizations over logic aren't accurate.
So, isn't it logical to conclude that Almighty God made created us because He loves to create or something like that and to look for something beyond that logic is illogical?
I don't think god did anything, but to the specifics of the question, this would assume god is real and did do something.
A such, I don't think, nor believe, logic, as understood by humanity, translates (if you will) to a being such as god, if god is the all knowing, all powerful. et al being some claim it is. Such a being is outside the scope of the understanding of humans no matter how much logic is involved.
That said, if one were to lower god to humanity's standard (or raise humanity to god's standard) - all things being equal I guess you could say - logically it would stand to reason god created us for a reason.
What that reason is, is known only to god.
Maybe god wanted to be happy. I find this to be the 'go-to' for many, because it makes them feel good. But, maybe it wanted slaves, it wanted to use humanity as toys much like a child uses army men as toys, it was bored, it was dared, it was curious (which would seem to negate the all knowing aspect of god some would say)... the list is almost endless.
Point being, all things being equal, we don't know why god created humanity. We can use the bible to try to figure it out, and maybe make claims based on logic.
But all things AREN'T equal and thus, logic only goes so far, which, when dealing with an all present, all knowing, all creating, all powerful, all-whatever being such as god is claimed to be, isn't nearly far enough.
