There's a thriller murder serial killer movie I remember. I think it was on Cinemax late night. I was a kid, it was around the late 80s early 90s. I kinda remember a hot female blonde working on a painting late at night in a college art department. Maybe wearing white overalls. I think the killer was sneaking up on her. I think there were boobies. I was a kid though, maybe it was clean and I just thought it was more.

Since we don't know how old you are .... can you tell us when 'i was a kid' means? This helps us exclude more recent movies. – iandotkelly Jun 11 '13 at 20:09
Maybe Art School Confidential (2006)? There's a strangler, art students and nudity. – FredH Jun 11 '13 at 20:39
Good guess, but that's not it. I would have seen it late 80s, 90s. It was serious, Art School Confidential looks humorous. – uosɐſ Jun 11 '13 at 20:54

How about Final Exam (1981)? According to a review, there is a scene in which

Lisa undresses as she hears who she thinks is her professor coming up the stairs. She then lies down with her back to the door, surrounded by paintings. The camera then follows the killer as he walks slowly up to the vulnerable girl, who then kisses his hand before realizing who is real is.

Part of the scene is included in this collection of clips on YouTube.

Wow. Good guess, but I'm 99% sure this isn't it either. The one I'm thinking of had a more modern and higher-quality production. Thanks though! – uosɐſ Jun 12 '13 at 1:08

You might be remembering Kari Wührer's Sensation:

Lila a college student discovers a latent ability to see into the past. When a professor hires her for some psychological tests she becomes the target of the killer of the woman she sees in her dreams.

There's a trailer available which includes the scene where she is painting in just a pair of overalls.
