The funeral scene
Maybe it's not so bad after all. Showing the body. My editor and the author were both insistent that the body be shown. I fought it for a minute, but gave in because...well, I don't have time to fight. I need to start painting this book if it's gonna make it's publishing date.
On second look, maybe it works. As I said before, the editor and author are much smarter than I.
There's a reason why the mourners are smiling. But you'll have to read the book to find out.
