Burning oil/(only at idle)

I just bought this 1995 prelude se (auto h23a1 motor)about a week and a half ago. The car sounds good when it's running gas mileage seems to be be right around 23mpg, but in the past 2 days I have noticed that after getting stuck in traffic for about 20 minutes or so I start to see some smoke rolling up mainly from what appears to be from the exhaust. I checked the oil today and it needed a 2 quarts of oil and 600 miles ago it was fine. Not entirely sure what it could be I have read through a lot of the burning oil comments it seems to burn a lot as is, but I want to look into fixing it up as much as I can. Just looking for possibilities I am not into the car for much, but other than burning increasing amounts of oil the car seems to be in good shape.
