This is a part of the Massacre series depicting the Spring season in the city of Chicago. Winter time is over and Spring has arrived; also arriving are the flowers, leaves on the trees, and violence in Chicago. The lime green, pink, purple, and periwinkle spots in the background represent gang members attacking each other over drug turf, money, and respect. The coral and red section on the left represent blood shed of the innocent youth that get caught in the crossfire. The two red crosses on the right represents Chicago residents praying for less bloodshed in the Summer time, hope for less violence in their neighborhoods.
