I hate posting images without names, but I'm at a loss as to what to name this one. I know what I see in it, but I'm not sure that's where I want to go in a title. ;-)

It began its life as a horizontal piece; I only recently turned it to (hopefully) enhance eye flow. It has been obsessively tweaked -- even by my own standards, but I think it's close to finished. I was going to wait to post it until I could also post a hi-res version that could be explored in detail. That render time, however, is currently estimated to finish 5 months from now!!!

Meanwhile, I'm very open to suggestions, criticisms, and, of course candidate titles!

Here's a link to a zoomable version of a very large render:

Thank YOU for such amazing art Janet :)
The earthy tones and some of the shapes suggest mushrooms, but what I tend to see here are more floral shapes: jack-in-the-pulpit shapes in the upper right and snapdragon or orchid shapes toward the bottom and left. Earth orchids.

But it's that sense of something familiar that I can't quite put my finger on that draws me into this image. I like this a lot.
Very organic & autumnal looking with your palette. The first thing I thought of was those fungus-y mushrooms that seem to pop out after a rain, I've even seen some on my grass. Me & most everyone else too. Where's the Keebler elves when you need them ? :lol:

And honestly, the only thing that I could come up with for a title was something with the Hobbits, like this was a house for them, or an escape for them, or a bolthole for them. "Escape To The Shire"? With a link to "band on the run"? :) Sorry, couldn't resist. Anyhow, it's a great pic & good luck named it.

Whereas a different cropping may have pulled my eye out of the image through the lower left corner, in this presentation, the detail in the lower left complements the rectangular corner. I like it very much!
