In 1988 Lee created a portrait
of the Vietnam Memorial entitled Reflections. With almost two hundred thousand
prints throughout the world, Lee Teter's Reflections has become perhaps the
most collected art print in the 20th century.
Lee accepts no income from the prints. Sales amounting to millions of dollars
continue to benefit veterans and their families.
Lee spends hours on the same square inch of canvas another artist
might cover with one stroke of a brush. His methods guarantee
there will never be an abundance of Lee Teter originals in any
medium. Since so few paintings will represent his lifes
work Lee is attentive to quality and content in every respect.
He understands art as the perfect language which,
if properly executed, need not be confusing or mysterious and
transcends the confinement of words as well as time.
