I have a signed ZAZA MUELIA, By The Sea. How can I tell if its real?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It is oil, looks as though painted with something other than a brush.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Taped on the back is a small paper stating This is an original painting
