The mural depicts Selena next to a “We Love Houston” sign. Houston’s skyline and red flowers have been added to an intense background of colors.

An artist who goes by the handle of @soder_texas on Instagram told the station they finished the artwork last weekend.

Soder also told KTRK he plans another mural close to the air in the upcoming weeks.

Selena’s memory remains strong across the state and nation.
