"This painting talks about the infrastructure. Most people, once they get a roof over their heads, they feel more comfortable.

"In South Africa [where Charles now lives], people wait for the government to give them a house. In Zimbabwe, you buy a plot of land and build your own house, and then you feel house-proud, you feel good.

"So even though times are hard in Zimbabwe, people have energy and pride."

This painting is not framed, and Charles has painted the edges, leaving you free to choose if you want to frame it or not.
