Having looked at the implementation for the Bitmap constructor being
used, Path.GetFullPath(filename) is called within the constructor. Thus,
I think a relative path may suffice. Have you tried:

Bitmap bgImage = new Bitmap(@"Images\ClosedDoor.gif");

The second argument just specifies that Image Colour Management be used.
