What a difficult question. It's one that would probably change when looking through all the paintings but the first one I thought of was:

Dancer in Front of a Window by Edgar Degas

i43.tinypic.com...

I just love the tones, dedication, movement and scene.

1) In the beginning you should follow 22124.

2) Hint number one will require no counting + - / * and means more than the statement.

3) You will need to find the beginning to get to the end.


Analysis.

Critical clues.
1. What does beginning mean. Beginning of the post? Beginning of the Contest? Beginning of the Paintings?
2. Is the 22124 actually a text message? (ex: Two, to One, to Four?)
3. There is no counting, no arithmetic and the string of numbers means more than 'the statement'.
4. What is the end? End of the list, something else?
5. Obviously, 'the Beginning' is not the 'start', but something more arcane.

I am thinking that 22124 is a date. But I can't find anything close.

Birthdate or deathdate.

This is kind of getting a Matrixy feel to it.

I've done dates (January 22 1924 and February 1 1924 depending on the month or day first). Then I went the zip code route and called some museums (Fairfax and Children's museum- no answer for either) around that zip code. Then I searched for artists that had any kind of history around the area. The only one that remotely had anything to do with it was James Whistler but it had nothing to do with Whistler's Mother (Painting in London, now in Paris).

I started this game as an easy distraction due to being very stressed in real life. Now I've gone from a
to a
to the infinite power. I give. But my last stab-in-the-dark guess with absolutely no basis to this whatsoever is:

William Bouguereau --- The Fair Spinner

22124 is definitely significant in some way.
Here are the hints from the OP:




HINTS:

1) In the beginning you should follow 22124.

2) Hint number one will require no counting + - / * and means more than the statement.

3) You will need to find the beginning to get to the end.

Things that you have to start at the beginning to get to the end:

1. journey
2. dinner
3. road
4. life and death
5. a maze
6. a song
7. time

I think I know what to do.

22124 is the zip code for Oakton VA, that's a 20 min drive from where I'm at.

So I'm off to Oakton to knock on doors, the answer is bound to be there.

Yes, please do. And if you happen to make a stop by Fairfax Museum or the Children's Museum of North Virginia, tell them to answer their darn telephone the next time I call.

I got it. I'm positive. Now I just have to wait until I can go again. The above were far fetched guesses but I am 99.9% Sure I have it now.

Any chance we can get the questions to teh previous contests earlier in the thread?
And did I use my guess or can I go again?

This is it. It has to be or it is one heck of a coincidence:


QUESTION: 0011001000110010001100010011001000110100

HINTS:

1) In the beginning you should follow 22124.

2) Hint number one will require no counting + - / * and means more than the statement.

3) You will need to find the beginning to get to the end.


0011001000110010001100010011001000110100 = 22124.

'In the beginning' = Genesis 1:1.

22 Chapters forward takes us to Genesis 22.

Genesis 22:1-24 deals with Abraham and Isaac.

Genesis 22:1-24 = 22124.

*Drumroll*

Johann Liss --- The Sacrifice of Isaac

You are the Winner!

5000 BTS points coming at you shortly!

QUESTION:

0011001000110010001100010011001000110100

HINTS:

1) In the beginning you should follow 22124. (Explained:'In the Beginning' is the first three words in the Bible more specifically in Genesis; 22124 = 22:1-24 in Genesis which is where the story of Isaac can be found.)

2) Hint number one will require no counting + - / * and means more than the statement. (Explained: Should be obvious now that you see what hint #1 referred to)

3) You will need to find the beginning to get to the end. (Explained: Relates to a book and 'beginning' is the definition of Genesis)




Answer: The Sacrifice of Isaac, 1625-26 by Johann Liss is a biblical story found in Genesis 22:1-24 or 22124 where Abraham was to give God his son Isaac as a burnt offering. 'In the beginning' is the first 3 words in the book of Genesis which you must find to get to the end.
