Best Friends with Chaos

This is a painting of the Challenger explosion with a woman running down the beach wearing a skin lifted from a Reuben's picture (don't remember which one). The woman is taken from a photo of myself running down a beach, not naked with a fur cape, but very happy nonetheless.
I understand exactly why I did the painting--but its an odd one to view many years later. It gives you a certain moment to see it as a stranger would--just before memory makes it familiar.
