Bowen says, "One of my favorite Paintings I did this year is now available as a Print: Doggie Diner. An official San Francisco landmark, the Doggie Diner’s iconic head is also one of my earliest memories. This is my homage to the Beacon at the end of a childhood car ride filled with anticipation on the way to the zoo. Once I saw it I knew we were there…"

Always a unique clientele at the Doggie Diner after a late Fillmore or Avalon night.
