Recently I changed my name from P.K. Margis to P.A. Margis. Why did I do this? The short answer is that it was time to be more authentic.
Years ago I made the business decision to take on the pen name of P.K. Margis. But recently I've decided that this is no longer necessary and have changed it back to my real name P.A. Margis. 
My new site is It looks exactly like but the web address has changed. Once the search engines have recognized pamargis I'll be deleting pkmargis.
In the meantime I'm content to be back to my authentic self.
It was a fun night at the UCSF Art for Aids auction.
Maybe 1000 people there to bid for art.
Here's mine on display across from SFMOMA.

I spoke with someone at an art reception about one of my paintings titled SoNAPA. I asked him if he had noticed the shadow. At first he looked puzzled but then the revelation occurred! If you haven't noticed it either I suggested you take a closer look.
