This is an original painting that dates to the late 60's to early 1970's

and is likely from the Philipines since the name Cruz is a filipino last name.

This is not a listed, known and collected artist, this painting was more likely sold

as tourist art or wall decor rather than fine art. The painting has a current value of $30 to $40 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
