Thunderbird | by Susan Maxwell Schmidt

A digital soft pastel painting of the mythological eagle known as the Thunderbird, as he spreads his wings and creates thunder and lightning. The Thunderbird is an important character in many First Nation tribes' lore, most predominantly among the Algonquin, Menominee and Ojibwe Native Americans. I used vibrant, earthy shades of red, orange, yellow, brown, green and blue for my majestic supernatural bird. For more info or to see this image in full resolution visit
