The packages pst-circ and pst-3dplot have a macro \ABinterCD, which sets a node at the intersection point of the linear functions which are build through the points A-B and C-D. The coordinates can be drawn easily with the \SpecialCoor feature. This allows to take from nodes/points only one coordinate. For example \psdot(A|B) sets a dot at the point with the x coordinate of A and the y coordinate of B. If we have the intersection point of two linear functions and called E, then we can draw the coordinate lines with
\psline[linestyle=dashed](E|0,0)(E)(0,0|E)
It is from the point on the x axis (x coordinate from E, y coordinate from (0,0)) to E itself and then to the point of the y axis (x coordinate from (0,0) and y coordinate from E).

\pscustom and \psbezier
to get a filled area colored, use always the first \psbezier curve with four and following ones with with three arguments!

Building a path

\documentclass[border=12pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{pstricks}
\def\CW{\psline(2,2)(3,4)(4,1)(4,-3)}
\begin{document}    
	\begin{pspicture}[showgrid](-5,-4)(5,5)
	\pscustom[fillstyle=solid,fillcolor=red,linewidth=5pt]
	{
		\CW % (2,2)(3,4)(4,1)(4,-3)
		\reversepath % now (4,-3)(4,1)(3,4)(2,2)
		\scale{-1 1}
		\CW % (-2,2)(-3,4)(-4,1)(-4,-3)
		\closepath % clockwise path
		% \pscircle moves the current path to (-1,0)
		\pscircle(0,0){1}% clockwise: circle not filled (scale -1 1)!!
	}% The inner of the circle is _not_ inside the path
	\end{pspicture}
