Gloves? Cold water and warm air

Glove recommendations for cold water and warm air?
Now that the ice is finally leaving the lakes here in the upper midwest, it's time for me to put the canoe back in the water. Can anyone recommend gloves (made for paddling or not) that work well on days with air temps in the 60's or 70's while the water temps are in the 30-40's?

I don't seem to be bothered buy warm hands from wearing the gloves and they prevent sunburn as well as keeping my hands warm when submerged in the water.

For lake paddling I most likely wouldn't wear gloves if the air temperature is 60 degrees or above, unless it's a windy day with rough water and your hands are getting wet.
