    Background: It must have been the cheese for supper; or perhaps the cold salmon; monsters on the spree in a king-sized nightmare. But they're there all right -- in the form of paintings such as this one, engagingly called "Chattering Pete."
    Then there's "The Snag"; aptly named, and for reasons which apparent -- or more of less.

    The oscillator -- no kin to oscillatoria, a type of fungoid seaweed; and erupting happily from its shell, the "Eggs-actly". All on show for visitors to the ARUNDA LOUNGE at Anthony Horder's in SYDNEY. Now "Willie Worms" another chimera or unfounded conception from the stratospheric art of SYDNEY painter, PERCY McDONALD. "The Perm" -- which gets some flattering attention.

    And "Smiling Sam" -- as this is called -- causes dizziness for at least one visitor.

    PERCY McDONALD has completed more than one hundred of his stratospheric animal and bird paintings in oils and water colours. Mac -- as he prefers to be known -- is 68 years old and a former landscape gardener in GLENFIELD. He hopes to take his collection to AMERICA soon; it makes him laugh -- and he's sure the Americans will appreciate his stratospheric art.
