Default Mystery Oil Leak

Seems we have a mystery oil leak in my wife's '03 MPV. After it heats up, if you are not moving and the engine is idling, we are getting a minor amount of smoke from under the hood. Is seems like the oil is collecting real low on the engine for it to be the normal suspects (valve cover, oil sending unit, etc...). We have cleaned up the residual oil in an attempt to locate the leak. Was wondering if anyone had some insight or experience with a similar situation?

Thanks in advance for any help!
