You have many options for buying original paintings. An art gallery might be what comes to mind first. Art galleries are a great place to buy art. Gallery directors know good art, and they can advise you about what you should buy. But there is one thing to keep in mind if you want to buy from a gallery. Art galleries add a very big mark up to the art they sell. In fact the mark up is usually around one hundred percent. The artist will tell the gallery how much he or she wants to make, and then the gallery will usually double that price.
