Reflections – Lee Teter
One of Lee Teter’s first oil paintings was a portrait of the Vietnam Memorial called “Reflections”. This picture came from the artist’s heart as he tried to understand the death of loved ones. He paints the emotion he feels in himself and the emotion he feels in others. Art is Lee Teter’s language. Feeling that it would be wrong to make money from this picture he freely gave the rights to make prints to a veterans group and went back to painting history. Though the prints of the painting continue to sell throughout the United States and the world, generating millions of dollars for veterans, Lee did not benefit greatly. He was pleased, however, to receive a letter from the Governor of West Virginia, Gaston Caperton, commending him for his insight and generosity.
