New Image: Birch Tree


At the very beginning of mom taking up pastels in her last few months of life she just had this overwhelming compulsion to start. She didn’t have a sense of talking to angels yet or visions of the afterlife or heaven. She just kept saying that she had to start painting again and that it was important but didn’t know why. She did two preliminary paintings. This was one of them.

All of mom’s art can be purchased as prints and other items at

All proceeds go to charity.


Phyllis Morris passed away at the age of 76 on October 21st, 2020. At the end of her life she had early onset dementia, Stage 4 cancer in her spine and also in her brain. During her last months she began painting with pastels daily. This art is now for sale with the proceeds going to her favorite group, the Christian Community, which is based on the work of Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy.
