help me class up the joint

$500 to spend on original art; where do I do that? I want to buy art for my home; specifically oil or watercolor paintings. I do not want to buy prints. I want to see the brush strokes. I would rather purchase in person. I am in the Phoenix AZ area. Feel free to list websites also.

Art historians/enthusiasts: Help me find this (18th c, european) painting?

I saw a painting that really intrigued me, but I forgot its title and author immediately. In this painting, a stately man sits at a desk, and there's a globe in the picture, but also a really indistinct object which looks wrong in some way - the perspective seems off somehow, its coloration - until you look at it from a more acute angle relative to the painting, at which point it makes more visual sense. It might have been titled 'diplomats' something or other.

This is driving me insane.

Does this painting sound familiar?

Help me identify a painting I saw, loved, and forgot... A group of "bohemians" are eating/drinking/sitting under a bridge... there may or may not be a bonfire... it may or may not be night... I use the word "bohemian" because it has stuck in my mind... I don't know whether that's part of the title, whether the painting is German, or whether it just struck me as abstractly "bohemian" - I had just become an artist :> - I saw it in a museum, most likely in NY, San Francisco, or London - sorry for the slight reeds of info - anything sound familiar to anyone?

Fishing for answers

My grandmother just gave me an old framed print of a 1903 painting entitled "Summer-Girl" by a James Arthur. I haven't had any luck finding out who Mr. Arthur was, but he seems to have been a capable artist and popular enough to have prints made of his work. There's a torn look to the top of the print, as though it were ripped from a book of prints, but I can't find any info about that book or where the image comes from. If anyone knows more about James Arthur, this picture or his other work, I would be most grateful. Thanks!
