Attached a painting having a signature reading 惺々暁斎:
Shōshō (Shōjō, Seisei) Kyōsai (Gyōsai), a name used by Kawanabe Kyosai.
The information comes from a site that deals extensively with Kyosai.
One can find there the names he used, examples of his signatures, and of is seals.

The signature in my painting looks OK, but I could not find the seal, nor was I able to read it.
Please have a look at the attache image. The site I mentioned is here:

Your signature reads 惺々暁斎画 (Seisei Kyosai-ga). The seal is illegible for me.
