    Two titles come mind. I’ll share both.
    “Unity in diversity”
    “We are all flowers in one garden”.
    I couldn’t decide which to offer, so i shared both.

    My first thought on seeing the circles being created from the outside slowly moving inside, was The Circle of Unity! We each have our own circles of influence which we are to promote unity and yes, this widens as we began to “touch” upon other circles. Circles upon circles! So my suggestion for the title is Circle of Unity. Here’s a quotation:
    “Bahá’u’lláh has drawn the circle of unity, He has made a design for the uniting of all the peoples, and for the gathering of them all under the shelter of the tent of universal unity. This is the work of the Divine Bounty, and we must all strive with heart and soul until we have the reality of unity in our midst, and as we work, so will strength be given unto us.”
    — ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

    Little by little
    – A shape at a time, a heart at a time
    – The gift of collective endeavor
    – Emergence
    – These little spots
    – Creation

    This reminds me of Baha’u’llah’s description of the Garden of Ridvan outisde Akka:
    One day of days We repaired unto Our Green Island. Upon Our arrival, We beheld its streams flowing, and its trees luxuriant, and the sunlight playing in their midst. Turning Our face to the right, We beheld what the pen is powerless to describe; nor can it set forth that which the eye of the Lord of Mankind witnessed in that most sanctified, that most sublime, that blest, and most exalted Spot. Turning, then, to the left We gazed on one of the Beauties of the Most Sublime Paradise, standing on a pillar of light, and calling aloud saying: ‘O inmates of earth and heaven! Behold ye My beauty, and My radiance, and My revelation, and My effulgence. By God, the True One! I am Trustworthiness and the revelation thereof, and the beauty thereof. I will recompense whosoever will cleave unto Me, and recognize My rank and station, and hold fast unto My hem. I am the most great ornament of the people of Bahá, and the vesture of glory unto all who are in the kingdom of creation. I am the supreme instrument for the prosperity of the world, and the horizon of assurance unto all beings.’ 5
    Perhaps you could call it “Ridvan”

    I like Kathy Edwards “CIRCLES of LIFE”
    However, as a painter, and watching your process…I’d call it “PROGRESSION”. It’s our life journey to progress towards the Unknowable Essence, isn’t it?
