Take your journal with you to a local museum. Do not visit the sections you know, instead check out work by artists you may not normally enjoy or artists whose works you have never seen. When your eye lands on something new and interesting, stop! Spend some time focusing on the details; let your mind relax. If you are inspired to write or sketch right then and there, open your journal, put the pen to the page and start. Do not stop until you have completed at least two pages. Do not just write about or sketch the painting though, write about what it was that stirred you and what thoughts flew through your head while you were looking at it. If you prefer to write at home, see if the museum has a small postcard that you can take with you. Then when you get home, find a quiet space to partake in artwork journaling.
