    Jim Carrey Debuts Painting On Twitter
    Jim Carrey showed off his artistic talent via Twitter with a twitpic of his painting, "Heart Upon Re-entry".

    Jim Carrey may be one of Hollywood's biggest funnymen – but the star took to his Twitter this week to reveal a surprisingly serious side-project.

    "A peek at my NY painting 'Heart Upon Re-entry' Acrylic n #BOING on canvass," he Tweeted on Friday, linking to a Twitpic of an abstract work full of fiery red and orange streaks.

    Earlier, he pondered the worth of another piece of art.

    "Three days ago I watched someone buy a picasso at Christies here in NY for 106.5 million. I wonder what it's worth today!" Jim Tweeted.

    It wasn't the first time the actor had discussed his painting projects. In a 2008 interview with Oprah, he said that he'd given then-girlfriend Jenny McCarthy a portrait of herself.

    "I did a painting for Jenny and it took me 50 hours," he said, adding that he typically painted "mostly nudes."
