I wanted to install GIMP just like installing it on Windows using the exe or msi file. Where can I find the RPM file so I can just issue the command
rpm -ivh gimp-2.8.14-x86_64.rpm
I like to install files as easy as that. Is it possible?

Gimp doesn't provide compiled .deb or .rpm files, so if you want it and don't want to compile source code check the repositories of your distribution or go to sites as:
Search for gimp, you will see a list of downloadable rpm files ordered by version, architecture and OS version.
If you downloaded the RPM then it will be in
~/downloads, but if you installed it with cURL or wget then it is in the directory you downloaded it to. More information on the RPM's location and/or where you got it from would be helpful.
If you do not know where it is, type
find / -name gimp-2.8.14-x86_64.rpm into the terminal.
As for possibility, yes you can do
rpm -i rpmName.
