Fuente Isabel II, popularly called, Galapagos Fountain was designed by Francisco Javier de Marietegui and sculpted by Jose Tomas. The stone and granite fountain was inaugurated in 1832 to celebrate the birth of the princess, later Queen Isabel II. This beautiful fountain is located in Plaza Nicaragua in the Retiro Park of Madrid, Spain.

Painting a fountain isn’t just getting it on paper for me.  I just like to be there, listening to the water and watching the light pass over the stone until it’s gone.
