All hints ARE in one location, on the facebook page.
This site was set up for discussion, as the facebook page is not a good format for discussion. Also, I can not post photographs or videos here.
When I sense that people are struggling at a certain point in the puzzle, I try to give a hint to move them along. Hints are not needed to solve the puzzle, and I am not obligated to give any hints. If a hint is confusing to you, you can choose to ignore it. It may not be something you need at the particular stage of the puzzle you have reached, and that is why it is confusing to you.
Your hints about the music notes, shadows and anagrams are on this site, but not on FB. The clues that cowlazars is referencing above are on FB, but not here (whereas Clue 1 and Clue 2 are - so I think it can be done). If we got to go to both places, cool but it would be nice if it was all in one spot that's all that I am sayin' sheesh.
I think I see what they all have in common, but I'm really wondering now about the one with all those lines next to the clock. Why is the clock image squished narrow like that? I found the clock image on clip art, so it's not a logo.
But why has the image been squished narrow like that? I used the Microsoft Paint tool to spread out the whole image to the correct width to show the normal clock, but I don't recognize anything there in the lines yet.
I don't think we can post actual mages in here - I'm just saying that because I tried to the other day, and couldn't. Anyway I always expected the clues to be posted on the main page, the Facebook page. And I like the mystery element of the surprise clues. So no complaints here!

My last hint, which didn’t seem to help many people (sorry!) was supposed to show examples of stylized letters, and how some letters that have identical parts or complementary parts are added together. This is called, “ligature”. Some simple examples of letters that have identical parts would be NR, AV, and HR. The examples I used as hints were ligatures, and were supposed to get you to find a ligature in the painting. I won’t tell you where or what it is.

Oh my!! I thought it looked like something backwards in there but if it is 2112, I certainly was not even close with my milk bottle idea! When I first looked at the puzzle (before finding the Rush symbols or anything else) I thought it looked like the same thing backwards with a "1" in the middle then I tossed that idea right out in a second and never thought of that again.
At first I thought it was a block letter T with a line down the middle. My boyfriend was the one who said it looked like “512” which took me on a weird goose chase in itself. Then when the pictures were posted I thought they were all logos & went back to the T. But I got sidetracked & didn’t get anywhere with it.
