Bob Byerley is a realist oil
painter of nostalgic Americana. Born in Kansas City, Missouri in
1941, he now lives with his wife in a large Victorian home in the Harry S.
Truman historic district of Independence, Missouri. The quiet,
shady, tree lined streets and old brick sidewalks where children still
ride homemade scooters are backdrops and ever inspiring theatrical sets on
which Byerley creates the themes of his paintings. Byerley has won
numerous painting awards and his works hang in many prestigious galleries
and private collections.
