Soltis writes on her relationship with color, "Color is what I see when I first wake and when I close my eyes at night. I dream in a spectrum of such varied vibrancy. No matter, where I have been in my life, I am guided by color from the grey day to the bright contrasting sunshine shimmer, Far reaching is my search for the most beautiful of all, but at this moment I find that it is as changeable as my mood. Somehow, I am guided by color in my day, as it keeps me company, decides answers, warms me on a cold day, and brings joy and relaxation, to my quiet moments. I think I am so very lucky to have a variety in my palette! I am an explorer, here on earth!"
