With a Pen you paint on a Form (which is an picture object holding pixels). To display a Form in Morphic you can use an ImageMorph.

Your morph can receive mouse events. You need to implement the handlesMouseDown: method to return true.
This will send mouse event messages to your morph. It will receive a mouseDown: message when the mouse button is pressed, and a mouseMove: message when the mouse is moved subsequently, and finally a mouseUp: message.
The argument to these messages is a MouseEvent. It has a position, but that is in world coordinates. You need to subtract the morph's topLeft coordinate from the event's position.
It's really just a handful of lines, but see the attached example for a working version.
