Go on ebay and search for the kind of art you want. You can go into the art category and select modern or whatever to narrow your search. Or you can just browse through what’s in there. When you find something you like, you can click on “Other items by this seller” and go to their on-line art store. Most things on ebay these days have a Buy It Now price instead of being a straight auction. So, you can see how much it is with shipping and all, and you can pick it up immediately without the uncertainty of an auction.

I did this when I was looking at art for my house after remodeling it. Almost all of the art in my house came from an on-line store. I also found this one seller in China where Chinese painters did various types of actual oil paintings. They were good size (24 x 36 inches) and actually cost more to stretch onto a frame than to buy and ship (it was just the canvas rolled into a tube for like $ 35 total). I even commissioned one woman to do a second copy of a particular painting for me that she had already sold. I was very pleased with the things I got from these people.
