Brush Tool Icon is Crosshair

Can someone explain why the brush tool icon that's in use in the workspace will sometimes appear as a crosshair instead of a circle?  I have changed the size of the brush from very small up to very large to ensure I haven't selected a brush size that isn't too small to be seen or to large to be outside the view of the workspace?

 

Thanks

Hello, the Caps Lock key might be pressed down, and it switches the cursors...

Also, the cursor will switch to the crosshair, if the brush is larger than what can be shown of the document.

You are very welcome... So many switches to trigger, when you think most keyboard keys have several functions thanks to the modifier keys, that can be combined!
Stick around, and help when you can, you'll learn a lot along the way...
