[*]Get a few tubes of acrylic artist paint (not too many; 4 or 5 common colors should do) and some acid-free paper. (just plain old 8.5 x 11 paper) Paint some abstract paintings. (NOTHING representational...! Pure abstract!)
Try things like different brush directions, thickness of paint, water washes, daubing paint on with a cloth or knife, mixing paint incompletely, tracing a shape as a stencil, painting over pieces of tape and then pulling them off, etc... Avoid planning! Paint very quickly!
After expending a few dozen sheets of paper, you might find one of them interesting. Now, mount that painting on a larger, plain white, plain black, or grey background. (I would try some canvas and gesso it and glue your painting on in the middle, or use poster matting and mounting, etc.) Now, hang it on a bare wall. Look at it.
If you get the inclination, please let me know how it worked!
