Need inspiration for my next work of... well... something.

I'm not an artist by any stretch, but I recently discovered that I kind of like painting with acrylics-- and I've badly needed a hobby for a while now. But I also need inspiration and so I'm looking for images that I can use as examples, but that I can make my own. For example, I really liked this
and so my very first (and so far only) painting was this (1
). I'm liking very geometrical or line-based repeating patterns that are either brightly multi-colored or monochromatic designs, but even though I have rulers and compasses, I also have a very unsteady hand so the design has to be kind of forgiving. Can you help me find images or sites where I might be able to find an idea for my next one?
I've been through the rest of society6
but haven't seen much that fits my skill level, or lack thereof. This is just for a personal hobby, to put up in my house-- I'm not looking to copy (and definitely not to sell), I'm just seeking some inspiration. Like I said, I'm not an artist (though I did live with and financially support one for 7 years)
, but I find it kind of fun-- I just need some ideas to get me started!
