Joseph Parton miner/artist Chase Terrace late 1800s/early 1900s

The above miner apparently painted many pictures and gave several away to friends; also selling others from a little shop on the crossroads at Chase Terrace near Cannock. Scenes of Cannock Chase with stags featured among the studies.

Today I reunited a couple of these paintings with the family. Are there any others out there?

I was remembering the Pitmen Painters from the north-east. Not an unexpected pastime for folk who worked underground for most of the day.
