CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) — It was a special time over at the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center, where a local painter was welcomed.

Merci Mccoy came to a special blessing ceremony in the clinic chapel.

The Mccoy family has donated several new inspiring paintings to be hung in the clinic's chapel for patients and visitors.

Mccoy made these paintings after months of research and even painted a portrait of Dr. Hector P. Garcia himself.

"He was actually the easiest one to paint," Mccoy said. "He really was. He was the easiest one to paint. He was done before any of the other characters."

If you're interested in seeing Mccoy's work at the chapel, you can find them at the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Family Health Center at 2006 Hospital Blvd.
