Simply toggling "show selection mask" off isn't quite enough in GIMP as 
the selection is still present and will affect subsequent tool 
operations -- look for the "Select None" command in the Edit menu and 
memorize its keyboard shortcut.

This is because in GIMP, the selection mask (or simply 'selection') is an 
actual part of the image (independent of layers) and therefore remains in place 
until you explicitly tell GIMP to unselect.  This is different from other 
applications (such as a word processor) where the selection isn't a 'thing' in 
and of itself and thus disappears automatically when you're no longer using it.
