I took a very long time to decide whether I should take part in an exhibition on the subject ‘Woman’s and Man’s Legs’. I hesitated for some time and when I finally came to a decision there were only few days to the filing date. To cut corners I painted two pairs of legs, one wearing ladies’ shoes, the other pair in gents’ shoes. I sent in a picture of it and then received a negative reply in which they said I could take part with another picture which showed naked feet. Instead I the painted this figure taking off on a flying carpet and looking down on the jurors of the competition. At the moment I concern myself with the angle between the lower legs and the shoes so that the figure looks steady on the legs.
