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."
