Paisley Goldfinch

This is watercolour on 90lb paper.  I'll have to find a way to flatten it.  I started with the idea of the Paisley bird (although I don't think it's technically paisley), and then incorporated some of the doodle techniques I've seen around the internet.  I see some things I'd do differently next time, but for a first time experiment, I think it worked out rather well.  I'm learning a lot about how my paints move on the paper(and how my watercolour pencils don't). 
 Paul said "That's ... unique.  I like the clouds." (and some other diplomatic stuff)
 
Now... how should I frame it?
