Five is between 4 and 6 and is the third prime number, after 2 and 3, and before 7. Because it can be written as 2^(2^1)+1, five is classified as a Fermat prime. 5 is the third Sophie Germain prime, the first safe prime, and the third Mersenne prime exponent. Five is the first Wilson prime and the third factorial prime, also an alternating factorial. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1. It is also the only number that is part of more than one pair of twin primes.

Five is conjectured to be the only odd untouchable number and if this is the case then five will be the only odd prime number that is not the base of an aliquot tree.

The number 5 is the 5th Fibonacci number, being 2 plus 3. 5 is also a Pell number and a Markov number, appearing in solutions to the Markov Diophantine equation: (1, 2, 5), (1, 5, 13), (2, 5, 29), (5, 13, 194), (5, 29, 433), … (A030452 lists Markov numbers that appear in solutions where one of the other two terms is 5). Whereas 5 is unique in the Fibonacci sequence, in the Perrin sequence 5 is both the fifth and sixth Perrin numbers.

My specialities are watercolour painting and printmaking. Further enquiries?

All works are hand painted or hand printed onto fine quality paper. Marion uses Arches 300gsm rough paper, Saunders Waterford 300gsm cold pressed paper for her watercolours and for each unique state print, the paper is either BFK Rives 280gsm cream paper or Hahnemulle rough 280gsm.

All enquiries welcome.

    So soft and gentle, but a strong number 5. Magnificent work, once again. Lovely transition of colour/tones from left to right (or is it right to left?). What a great series this is!
