Set up the camera on a tripod in front of the work and focus on the picture's centre..  it is preferable if the painting is on a stand or easel to give equal height.

Place lights of equal strength and at the same distance apart (giving a 45 degree angle) on either side and direct onto the painting to eliminate flash reflections.

You may have a steady hand but the tripod or even a pile of books will work better for you.

Overhead pictures - works on small paintings best.
