sys.path contains a list of paths that Python will use to search for
modules. It does not affect anything else. In particular, adding it
won't affect the paths that PIL uses to open files.

You can build up the fulle path name, using os.path.join:
By the way, beware backslashes in your path there. You can use forward
slashes with fewer problems. The reason backslashes are more problematic
is because it almost always collides with the way we make string literal
escapes in Python.
