I am trying to find a picture of a particular painting of a shuttle launch at night, viewed from 3/4 above. The original is at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and last time I saw it, was exhibited near the entrance of the IMAX theaters.

It was used sometime during the 90's as an Aviation Week cover; can anyone help me?

I believe you are referring to "Lightship," by Attila Hejja. There is one on eBay right now for $55.

Thanks guys, but that isn't the one. The one I mean is looking down onto the shuttle from above, showing exhaust dynamically streaming across the launch platform.

Here's another possible candidate (although not at night).

Another poster on the French Forum de la ConquĂȘte Spatiale posted this one.

Per suggestion from Steve Garber, the painting could be the painting published on p110 of the book NASA/Art: 50 Years of Exploration (Abrams, 2008).

I've emailed lucspace about this.
