(small part of this article)
There was a new resource just done in the last few months (the ones above
are older), but I can't find it for the life of me...I will continue to
look for it and forward it to you if I find it.

> Hello all,
> I am wondering if anyone has come across best practices for describing art
> in alternative text? I can find many examples of best practices for
> alternative text in general but not for art specifically.
> I want to do justice to the art but I am not always sure what the
> intention of the artist was in creating the piece, nor am I always sure
> myself what the elements of the art piece are. I am trying to balance
> respect for artistry and respect for accessibility. My words about the art
> will necessarily be coloured by my own interpretation of the piece.
> Any thoughts would be very welcome.
> Thank you!
