Bad Oil Leak

Well.... Let me say that i haven't searched anything on here but wanna post this and see if anyone else has seen or run into this problem. I was getting new tires put on my wifes car today and like most... I always look under the car real good while its on the lift. I had oil changed about a month ago or so and all was good..... Until today!!

I can't tell where the oil is coming from.. It appears to be up high behind the altenator possibly... Or somewhere in that area... Its a significant oil leak because on the corners of the block, bolt heads, hoses etc the oil is dripping. I don't read up on the V6 stuff to often but im posting the pic to show u folks where its coming from. From under the front of the car... All the oil is on the left side of the motor.
