London, Aug 2 (IANS): Actor Jim Carrey, who loves to paint in his free time, is working on a 16 feet tall and 12 feet wide canvas and says one of his art work will be seen in his new film "Mr. Popper's Penguins".
"I paint a lot and this is a huge passion for me. So when I'm not acting, I wake up every morning, have my coffee and I pick up a paint brush. I have a studio in New York," okmagazine.com quoted him as saying.
"I have a painting I'm doing. I can't wait to get back because I have around five more days work on it. It's 16ft tall and 12ft wide and it's a black light painting. It's viewable in the daylight, but when you turn the black lights on, it lights up and people come out of the dark," he added.
A black light painting is a different dimension of art with black light and fluorescent materials.
The 49-year-old star says one of his art work can be seen in his new film "Mr. Popper's Penguins".
"One of my paintings is in the movie," he said.
