The inspiration for the painting was to show many of the sins, vices, horrors and dangers officers deal with on a regular basis. Some of these are represented in the painting as such:
violence - broken windows,
conspiracy/secrecy - no tell motel
drugs - Rx pharmacy & 8 ball
gang graffiti - it says "main st monsters"
murder/death - the crow
The grim reaper with the raised sickle is a representation of the media or general public ready to cut down or chastise an officer for anything they feel they do wrong.
316 in the Licence plate represents the Bible verse John 3:16.
Psalms 23:4 and the Officer walking into the city represent the faith, trust, courage and accountability all Officers must have to perform their duties.
