Identify the white stockinged girl

I'm wondering if anyone can identify a painting on the wall of a friend of mine from a brief description. It's a painting of a woman in her early-mid 20's, who looks vaguely like Bo Derek.

She's standing on one foor, with her back towards away, but slightly twisted about 45 degrees clockwise. She's wearing knee high black and white stockings, on one foot with her right leg bent back and her toes pointing up. Her right hand in pinching the sock over her right foot, pulling it up from her toes. She's wearing a blue-white tank top, and no underpants. She has straw blonde hair which hangs until just below her shoulders.
The background is a pond with small green bits of floating foilage, which fades seamlessly into the sky. Additionally, the figure of the girl raises out of the painting (i.e. if you touch the painting, you can feel where the girl figure is.
Anyone able to guess the painting?
