Reflections in a still life-diffused light

I took these photos in my kitchen playing and experimenting with diffused light.
Reflection in the glass of a paintingI know that all of you are photographers and I have a question for you;

For the still life photo at the left:
1. I use a soft, diffused light coming from the kitchen lighting, still the fruits' shadows are sharply defined on the table cloth.

Reflection in the glass of a still life painting2. Thought it is backlight, the texture is emphasized not the silhouette and the shadows are to the right.

What is this picture?

You have a hint in this second photo (bottom right).

Still life on the kitchen wall

It is a part of the kitchen's reflection in one of my pastel paintings, hanging on the kitchen wall.
Fruits, shadows and lights are fake but the reflection is real.
Thanks for playing along. It was easy, wasn't it?

Yes, I picked it was a painting just from the colouring of the elements, but I do like your little story and mystery that your text carries along.

Lovely reflection of the kitchen within the painting.

Good post.

Beautiful photos. I knew that a diffuser should soften the shadows so I figured it must be a painting but I still enjoyed your puzzle. I love the painting by the way, the richness of the colors is stunning.

Beautiful! It is nice to see a photo of an original painting by one of the meme members! My guess is that one photo is taken with glass covering the painting, and one is not?
