Winter Berries - Work in Progress

This is the second oil painting that I am working on... this time on gesso'd hardboard that has been coated with a glass bead medium from Golden.  This is going to definitely be a challenge!  Up close, the texture from the glass bead makes it hard to see the painting (it is very abstract), but from a distance I can clearly see the robin.  I'm not sure how this one is going to turn out.  I am even thinking of applying a coat of glass beads over top to add to the wintery feel of the painting.
