Pampe,
great idea and a great project! Hope everyone will sign up and make the commitment to one painting a week for a year!! It will be awesome to see the beginning and the ending work...I know I really grow with my art when I paint consistently!

Thanks for getting this project up and running!

I was in a gallery once where a guy did a really interesting exercise along these lines.

he started with 1 painting and would paint for 2 or 3 days. THen he would butt up another sheet of paper next to it and "continue" the painting. (removing the 1st painting after he got started). After 2 or 3 days, he would butt up another sheet to the 2nd sheet. Start the painting and remove sheet 2, etc....
Regardless of how he would feel about the painting he was working on, he would only allow himself 3 days per painting.

In the end he had about 100 paintings and showed the entire series in a gallery.

It was really interested to see his development over the year-- he was an abstract painter--you could see when he was depressed or had really good weeks-- A grand exercise and truly amazing to see the gallery walls filled with his stuff.....

I think I'm interested in this idea. Is there a specific medium for this project? is it going to be an official "project"?
