There are two paintings that Nook sells as spotlight items: Common and Basic, I believe.
All others are purchased from Redd, but, as SpyBoy13 said, they are often fake. You find out only when you go to donate them to the museum or try to sell them to Nook. Both will be able to identify them.
I have only one painting left, the Flowery Painting. It showed up at Redd's again the other day, and I bought it, keeping my fingers crossed. But, it was another FAKE!
does anyone know when the common and basic paintings come out? i have Nookington's store and have been waiting forever but have yet 2 see or purchase them? do i have 2 change store's or just keep waiting? i have only 3 to go before i'm finished.
