You are using the --sign option to rpmbuild but don't have a GPG key set up. To view your GPG keys use:

$ gpg --list-secret-keys

Then add the details for the key you want to use to ~/.rpmmacros, for example:

%_signature     gpg
%_gpg_name      My Key Name

Once this is done try the rpmbuild command again. Alternatively dropping the --sign option when calling rpmbuild will allow you to build the RPM, albeit unsigned.

There are some further notes on this in the draft documentation available here:
